The most popular route onto Rote Wand starts at Stallersattel the road pass which connects the Italian Antholz / Anterselva Valley with the Austrian Derfereggen Valley. It leads south ast first on the eastern bank of the Ackerstall Creek. It crosses the creek twice before turning right (west) onto the Staller Alm pasture.
After a while the ascent trail leaves the vicinity of the creek (if you went on, you would reach the Regelscharte Pass which would lead you down into the neighbouring Gsies / Casies Valley). The route now heads directly for the summit reaching the base of the summit block on its southern side. The remainder of the ascent is a steep scramble along grassy slopes onto the relatively narrow summit area.
