Route: Nördlinger Hütte - "Ursprungsattel" ridge - Eppzirler Scharte gap - Höllkar - Solsteinhaus

Leaving the Nördlinger Hütte, you begin by heading east but soon follow the trail north as it passes below the eastern cliffs of the Reither Spitze mountain. The trail then takes you east once more and brings you to the Ursprungsattel ridge (2087 m). Here, you do not head in the direction of the Freiungstürme mountains but instead keep to the trail as it descends towards the north-east. At the Breiter Sattel ridge (1794 m), you branch off to the right on trail 74 in the direction of the Eppzirler Scharte gap. After crossing the large field of scree at the Kuhljoch and making a somewhat winding ascent, you will come to the Eppzirler Scharte gap (2102 m). From here, you embark on a climb with an elevation gain of around 200 metres up the lime gravel-filled Höllkar cirque (trail 212) before following the gentle undulations of trail 211/212 as it leads to the Solsteinhaus.
