Description

From the hut skin initially in a similar direction to yesterday but at around 2500m head more to the W up the glacier, then SW.

More challenging is to take a slightly higher line up the glacier to the Ober Oschenscharte then steeply up to the Dreilanderspitze summit with a final bootpack. From the summit it is also a direct ski down to the hut, initially down your ascent route, then continuing NW to join the tracks from the other col.
