Route: Bettelwurf hut - summit Großer Bettelwurf - Bettelwurf hut - Lafatscher Joch - Hallerangerhaus

After spending the night at the Bettelwurfhütte hut, the eagle’s nest of the Karwendel mountains, you take trail 222 back to the Lafatscher Joch (2081 m). Once there, you turn on to trail 223 heading north. As part of the famous Adlerweg long-distance hiking trail, this guides you between the Lafatscher, Roßkopf and Speckkarspitze mountains on a continuous descent to the Hallerangerhaus hut. After spending the night at the Bettelwurfhütte hut, the eagle’s nest of the Karwendel mountains, the route climbs a little eastward, well signposted, where the trail leads up from the Halltal valley and then continues climbing southeastward to the “Eisengattergrat”, the southern ridge of the Großer Bettelwurf mountain. From here, keep north, steadily uphill along the Eisengattergrat towards the summit until you reach the rocky outcrop and the first wire-rope-secured passages. The following, partly secured and partly in easy climbing (I) to overcome in good grip limestone, now leads mostly to the right of a diagonally descending gully to the summit ridge and overcomes some partly exposed rock bands. Towards the top, the path becomes somewhat steeper. Shortly below the summit ridge the path divides, whereby the left path seen from below is easier to climb. At the summit ridge, keep to the east and reach the summit cross via a narrower ridge section that is exposed on both sides. From the summit, take the same route back to the Bettelwurfhütte hut. After a refreshment at the hut, the route continues slightly uphill and downhill on trail no. 222 back to the Lafatscher Joch (2081 m). There you branch off in a northerly direction onto trail no. 223. This path is also part of the famous long-distance hiking trail “Adlerweg”. Between Kleinem Lafatscher, Lafatscher Roßkopf and Speckkarspitze, you walk downhill to the north until you reach the beautifully situated Hallerangerhaus hut.
