Through the long Lazzach Valley
From the farthest Ridnaun Valley near Maiern through the Lazzach Valley to the Gleckspitze in the Wipp Valley

First follow the forest path upwards over a few serpentines and then enter the Lazzachertal valley. Cross the first bridge and continue up the left side of the valley. After about 6 km, turn left at the fork in the road. 400 m after the fork, at the first stream coming from the left, leave the trail, approx. 2030 m. Go up to the right of the stream into a plain. You can now clearly see the steep summit structure of the Gleckspitze. Always to the right of the stream channel, exactly in the direction of the summit, over a slope into a flat area (2250 m). Straight on, then keeping left into a flat bottom (2350 m). Continue through a hollow and up to the left onto a small shoulder (2460 m). Now turn diagonally right onto a ridge. Possibly a ski depot here. Continue straight or left onto the ridge and over this to the right to the summit with a small cross. Descent as ascent.
