The Clariden is a mountain in the Glarus Alps, located at an elevation of 3,267 m (10,719 ft) between the Swiss cantons of Uri and Glarus. While on the north the Clariden overlooks the 1,948 m (6,391 ft) high Klausen Pass, the south side is covered by large glaciers. The Hüfi Glacier on the west is drained by the Chärstelenbach stream, a tributary of the Reuss that eventually flows into Lake Lucerne. The Clariden Glacier on the east is drained by the Linth that eventually flows into Lake Zürich.
