About the Kesselalm with the touring skis to the Hochwart in the Ulten Valley

Follow trail no. 11, cross the Maier Bach stream later and then walk on the other side through sparse forest and across meadows, as well as along the forest path to the upper Kesselalm, 1917m. Turn shallowly left into the hollow and then left uphill, crossing steep hollows for a short while, to a ridge with small trees. Now briefly straight up and left into flatter terrain. At 2100 m turn right through a wide hollow, then left and flat into the large basin, 2206 m on the map. Straight into the basin on the right; at 2300 m a steep slope begins on the right. Climb this between two rocky peaks (very narrow and steep at the top). You reach a flat area on the right again. In front of us, the steep summit slope now rises up on the left. Walk up this slope, on the right side, to the ridge, where you will immediately reach the summit cross. Descent as ascent.
