Ascent: First follow the forest road upwards over a few serpentines and then enter the Lazzachertal valley. Cross the first bridge and continue uphill on the left side of the valley. After about 6 km, turn left at the fork in the road. 400 m after the fork, at the first stream that comes from the left, leave the trail. Go up to the right of the stream into a plain. You can now clearly see the steep summit structure of the Gleckspitze. Always to the right of the stream channel, exactly in the direction of the summit, over a slope into a flattening of the terrain (2250 m). Continue straight on, then keep left into a flat bottom (2350 m). Continue through a hollow and up to the left onto a small shoulder (2460 m). Now diagonally right onto a ridge. Here is a possible ski depot. Straight on or left onto the ridge and over it to the right to the summit with a small cross. Descent as ascent.

! After heavy fresh snowfall, the path into the Lazzachertal valley is avalanche-prone!
