The mountain is composed of three distinct peaks, which are lying close together. The Wetterhorn 3'692 m (most visible from Grindelwald), the Mittelhorn 3'704 m and the Rosenhorn 3'689 m.
The first ascent of the Wetterhorn: 31th August 1844 by Melchior Bannholzer and Joh. Jaun.
The ascent by Alfred Wills and his party during 1854, which Wills mistakenly believed was the first, was the beginning of the golden age of alpinism. The golden age of alpinism was the period between the ascent of the Wetterhorn in 1854 by Alfred Wills and the first ascent of the Matterhorn in 1865, during which many major peaks in the Alps saw their first ascent.
