From Stüdlhütte on the Fanotscharte (2802 metres) climb in a northerly direction for five minutes, then bear east at the route signposts for Pfortscharte, Salmhütte, Glorer Hütte, heading south, south-east via route AV 713. This proceeds directly beneath the moraine fields of the Ködnitzkees and way above the so-called ‘Viehböden’ meet the Johann-Stüdl trail (AV 702 B). This initially well-developed trail now heads up through pasture slopes, which are then rope-secured up to the top. Now into the rubble-strewn corrie, continuing up through the corrie. At the fork in the path in the corrie do not bear right at the rocks, but continue heading for Salmhütte up through the corrie. The path in this section proceeds in short serpentines through rubble and scree, but the subsurface is good. The route proceeds steeply up to the Pfortscharte. On the other side there is short section in similar terrain heading down, at the fork in the path keep to the signposts for „Glorer Hütte“. From here proceed on the Luckner Weg heading south, on lush, wavy mountain meadows past Obere Glatzsee and after a while you will get to Glorer Hütte at Berger Törl (2651 metres). In the wide mountain valley, which stands out with its pasture slopes, there are terminal moraines, evidence of earlier glacier activity, which reach the trough and the Glatzbach. After Glorer Hütte the route proceeds parallel to the goods cable car on part of the earthy path and via few smaller streams into the valley down between mountain pastures, where to preserve the natural surroundings you have to keep to the path. The path then finally meets a wide trail which proceeds to the Lucknerhaus, the destination for this stage and the end of the Adlerweg trail in East Tirol! Or a lovely starting point, if you tackle the route from this way.
