This glacier covers most of the upper Rotbach valley, a small eastern branch of the Täsch valley. The area is surrounded by high mountains, the Kinhorn (3790 m) in the north, the Täschhorn (4491 m) in the northeast and the Alphubel (4206 m) in the southeast. Minerals are found in outcrops on the steep slopes below the glacier (ca. 3000-3400 m asl).
