Into the valley and uphill
Unique snow and mountain landscape at the Großer Jaufen in Braies.

The starting point is the car park at the Brückele Inn (Alb.Ponticello, 1500 m) on the right before the bridge. Follow the forest road for approx. 1 km flat into the valley until you reach the stream bed. To the left of the large stream bed on the forest road in serpentines steeply up (Mar. No. 4) to below the rock towers. Just below, crossing a gully to the right, always continue on the path over two flat sections. Left through sparse forest and then right, always on the path to the Obere Rossalm, 2142 m). Continue straight ahead through a hollow and past old stone pines, cross to the left below the Kleiner Jaufen flat into a saddle. Now the summit of the Großer Jaufen is visible far behind. Across open slopes, first flat, then somewhat steeper to the summit of the Großer Jaufen visible far behind. Across open slopes, first flat, then somewhat steeper to the summit. The view down to the Pragser Wildsee lake is beautiful (watch out for cornices!). Descent: as ascent
