Description of the way

By car or by bus we go in the Fischlein Valley to the Dolomitenhof and to the (chargeable) parking place by bus or car. We follow the cross country ski trail to the Talschluss hut (1.526 m). On the left side of the hut we continue southwards through the Bachern Valley (consider the risk of avalanches). On the bottom of the La Lista/Hohe Leist (1.900 m) we go on the left. Through a draw and then steeply up-hill staying on the left we arrive at the Busa di Dentro/Inneres Loch. We turn eastwards and follow the kettle. The terrain is getting continually steeper and tighter. Underneath the Cresta Zsigmondy/Zsigmondykopf and the Monte Popera/Hochbrunner Schneide we turn right and we across the steep hillside (here usually ski deposit or without ski for 50 m). Finally we go on by foot or ski for another 30 min. and we arrive at the peak.

Descent: same way back!
