Directions

Ascent:

We go back up the track on the left. From here we go up a forest track (sledge run) to the left, all the way to an alpine hut (1,900 m). Then we go on through some woods, either on the right or the left-hand side of the stream, until we come out of the woods. Here, at 2,000 m, you’ll get an all-round view from the Monte Quaira (Fellhorn) on the left to the Monte Alto (Hoher Mann) straight ahead. We now reach the pass on the left-hand side and then arrive at the summit from the rear to the right of us. Alternatively, we can go back up gentle ups and downs until we reach the pass on the right (2,500 m); from here, leaving our skis, heading to the left, we arrive at the summit after 20 minutes along a beautiful ridge. The Monte Quaira (2,518 m) is just as easy to reach. To reach the top we arrive opposite the left-hand pass and from here we go up to the left towards the summit through a slight hollow.

Descent: via the same route.

Variante

In safe snow conditions it will be worth going on a hike to the southern foresummit of the Monte Regola (Regelspitze, 2,747 m; 1,282 m difference, 4 hours): on the forest track signposted “Kasertal” we turn right and go up the valley; at the end of the trees we go right towards the ruins of an alpine hut (2,100 m). We go along the valley, always keeping to the right. We go across a plateau below the final slope near a rocky ridge. We move diagonally to the left onto a shoulder and continue right on the mountain ridge leading to the foresummit.

    War gestern, 03.03.2013, auf'm Weg zum Hohen Mann. Laut einer Beschreibung in "Südtiroler Schneeschuhwanderungen" kann man, auf der Pfinnscharte angelangt, rechts den Weg auf den Hohen Mann nehmen. Das stimmt nicht. Zwar sind viele Spuren auf die Pfinnscharte, jedoch keine mehr auf den Berg. Deswegen unbedingt den Weg rechts der Alm nehmen. lg
