I started at the Lodnerhütte and hiked up to the Ginggljoch. Normally by mid July there shouldn't have been any snow left on the trail, but this year there was quite a bit and that slowed me down.
From the saddle I scrambled up the WNW ridge, and then I used the snow to my advantage by coming down the NW face. Once I got back on the Ginggljoch, I went down the other side, eventually ending up at Patleid.
