Thaur - kl.Lafatscher and back Map

Thaurer-Alm-Parkingspot - (Rosskopf) - Thaurer Kreuzjöchl - (Jochspitze) - Stempeljoch - Lafatscher Joch - kl. Lafatscher - Herrenhäuser - Törl - (Thaurer Zunterkopf + Kaisersäule) - and back to the start


note: There isn't an actual pathway to the top of little Lafatscher, just follow the ridge. One should be very carful where to step and should not be afraid of heights. Climbing an UIAA-II should be no Problem. It's very easy to do but in this case probably deadly if you fell.

Other than that the route is very scenic and easy to follow



Scrambling up mountains and along technical trails with moderate fall exposure. Handholds are necessary to navigate the trail in its entirety, although they are not necessary at all times. Some obstacles can be very large and difficult to navigate, and the grades can often be near-vertical. The challenge of the trail and the steepness of the grade results in very strenuous hiking. Hikes of this difficulty blur the lines between "hiking" and "climbing".
