From here there are three possible routes: a) straight up, initially on a gentle slope which then gets steeper and steeper, to the right along the Vedretta della Fontana (Freibrunner Ferner), keeping an eye out for crevasses. b) up along the valley slope near the moraine, then turn right to the Vedretta di Barba d’Orso (Bärenbartferner) and continue uphill, initially in the centre then along the right side. At 3,267 m above sea level we reach the right-hand ridge, and then head south-west to reach the summit.
