Route: Right behind the Gasthof Bad Bergfall you go on on the on forestall way (path n. 32) for a little while over two hairpins (direction West), then the path turns toward Sud, in Langtal. From here you easily reach a bridge that leads right over a stream. Now you can either go on on the left side of the stream, or once crossed the bridge turn left so that you will find yourself on the right side of the stream. At an high of 1700 m the ditch divides. Now you go on on the right side of the valley uphill for a while through the forest. After a while the terrain becomes flat again and you can walk through a light section of forest and then arrive to the so-called Lapedurscharte (2200 m). Right before arriving to the path sign, you have to turn right and the toward West over a bump. After other bumps, you will reach without problems the crest – unfortunately you will loose 25 m of hight – without problems in the highest point with the cross. If you will not be satisfied, you can go on along the crest and reach the Piz da Peres (2057 m ).
