The Alpinisteig is a well-maintained mountain climbing trail dating from the First World War which shows just how well constructed these former military trails were. The section between the Elfer- and Sentinellascharte gaps is very icy even in summer, so crampons, pickaxes and ropes are essential.
Starting point: Zsigmondyhütte mountain hut
Map/literature: Tabacco no. 010

Only walkable if the current weather conditions are good. WARNING: The GPX data may differ from reality. For information your contact is the Alpinschule Sexten Drei Zinnen +39 0474 712156 info@alpinschule-dreizinnen.com
