Pfannenkopf Map

From the top of the Valfagehrbahn chairlift either follow route18 back under the lift, or head directly over onto the east face and bear right to connect with the other route below the rock band. The first option can be less tracked, take a left turn off route18 through a U-shaped passage, this first section is fairly steep and one must eventually navigate through the rock band onto the gentle south facing slopes. Its a nice alternate way down from the Valfagehrbahn chairlift, however, the traverse back to the chair can be long and tiring, but its away from the crowds.
