Description

The track starts from the Engiloch car park and climbs first along the sparse stretch of forest to the Ritzibach waterfall, which shall be kept on your right (orographic right) going up a steep slope that needs well-settled snow. It then proceeds along the plain of the Sirwoltu lakes reaching the last, very inclined, traverse from 2620 to 2700 m.

From here it goes easily to the summit. The easiest and safest descent is the one that goes along the ascent track, but many couloirs can be used to return to the initial wooded stretch.
