The Tonisteig is a well-secured, occasionally very exposed via ferrata leading to a striking summit. The descent via the east side is rather loose and slippery in parts and less beautiful. However, in combination with the Tonisteig, it is a highly recommended way to cross the Hochtausing. Also possible in the reverse direction, of course.
