Through the "Cannon barrel"
Challenging and rewarding hike in the Tessa Mountain Range, ideal in winter and spring.

Ascent: heading for the Farmazonhof meadows (1,380 m), we arrive at the edge of the forest and enter the valley along a trail on the right-hand side. We go up, on the left-hand side of the stream, a steep slope and reach the Farmazonalm (1,886 m; beware: high risk of avalanches on the left side of the section of the trail!). We continue ahead into the valley as far as the entrance to a narrow gorge called “Kanonenrohr” (cannon barrel). We trudge up until the terrain becomes less steep. We continue left diagonally up steep beautiful slopes until we begin to go right diagonally all the way up to the summit. Descent: via the same route.
