At the car park of the Dolomitenhütte, the trail leads immediately up to the left, across a meadow. After the short forest section, the first rope-secured section over rocky terrain begins. It is quite easy to do, even without a via ferrata set. After the ridge you come to the Weißsteinalm (no food service) and follow the signs across the moderately steep alpine meadow. After about an hour's walk, the challenging part of the hike begins. After the Auerlingköpfl, the trail leads over rope-secured rock passages to a scree gully below the Laserzwand. The steeply ascending path leads in several serpentines to the Hohe Törl (2.098m). This area is very rutted and requires surefootedness (danger of falling rocks from hikers ahead). After the Törl, the trail descends slightly and passes many climbing and via ferrata entrances. After the Laserzwand, the trail rejoins the wide road. After about 2.5h you reach the Karlsbader Hütte.

The way back is via the gravelled road. This can be shortened via several paths (follow the signs to the Dolomitenhütte).
