The route leads past the junction to the Hochalmkreuz (left) and the junction to the Brendelsteig (right). Here you keep the direction and climb somewhat laboriously - partly in rocky terrain and in unpleasant scree - up through the cirque. The cairns also provide orientation here. The path becomes increasingly steep, the last section to the Schlauchkar saddle runs in a southwesterly direction. In this area you have to cross a hard snow field most of the time, it is best to follow the footprints. From the Schlauchkar saddle (2,639 meters) then past the Birkkarhütte (emergency shelter) and over the rope-secured climb in easy scrambling along the west ridge over to the summit of the Birkkarspitze (2,749 meters) with the cross. From the summit back to
