Route Description

From the hut, take the trail going northeast across the Vernagtferner (glacier) to reach the Brochkogel Joch (3423 m) south of Petersenspitze. From the saddle, continue somewhat downhill, past the Hinterer Brochkogel and north of the Mitterkarjoch. When you have reached the basis of the summit, turn to the right and reach the collar.
