The route begins in Hinterbichl and follows the Alpine cart track to Dorfertal and the Johannis Hütte (2121 m). The taxi shuttle service shortens the ascent. To Defreggerhaus (2964 m) with views up to the shimmering white firn snow of the widely glaciated area. After the Mullwitzaderl (3241 m) the ascent of the glacier begins.
