From parking lot P1 Riedboden at the northern end of Scharnitz, first in the direction of Mittenwald, keep right directly at the 1st junction. After a short time, turn right again and cross the Isarsteg to the main road. Cross it slightly to the right in the direction of the railroad crossing. Continue over the railroad line and follow the forest road in the direction of Mittenwald. Turn right at the fork and immediately left again following the signs on the well-marked path to the Brunnsteinhütte (1,560 m). Continue along the Brunnsteinsteig in countless serpentines through mountain pines and later some scree, to the Tiroler Hütte (2,153 m not managed). From there, continue to the right over the Rotwandlspitze (border stone) to the Brunnsteinspitze. Enjoy the magnificent view over Scharnitz and Mittenwald. A steep, strenuous descent, partly over precipitous rock steps (only for experienced hikers, absolute surefootedness and freedom from vertigo required!) leads back to Scharnitz via the Brunnsteinkopf, Birzelgrat and the Adlerkanzel.
Alternatively: Descent the same as ascent.
