Route description
Starting point:

Martin-Busch Lodge, about 3 hours from Vent.


You continue to climb up the Niederjoch valley inwards, on about half the way to the Similaun hut you turn west towards the summit ascent to Hauslabkogel.

After the descent we continue up the Niederjoch valley, at the end of which the Similaun hut is soon to be seen.


Along the ascent track and after the first striking rocky ridge you keep to the right in order to ascend again as few height meters as possible towards Similaunhütte. Alternatively, if the snow conditions are good, you can also go down the eastern chute before the last rock of the summit ridge. (good to see in ascent).
