If you look from Merano into the Passeier Valley, you will see a striking striking "pyramid" to the left: the Matatzspitze. Although not very high, it offers a magnificent panoramic view of the a magnificent panoramic view: to the north the Ötztal, Stubaier and Zillertal Alps to the north, the Sarntal Alps to the southeast, to the southwest the Trentino mountains, the Mendel ridge, the Brenta group, the Laugenspitzen and the Ortler group.

From the small group of farms Christl (inn) you climb on Mark. No. 3 largely through the forest up to the Waalerhütte "Pfarrer" on the Matatzwaal (bar, often only in the afternoon). The trail continues moderately steep to a flattening (Hitzenbichl), a grassy ridge. At the fork in the path, keep left or straight ahead on Mark. Nr. 7A and reach another hilltop, the Hahnl. After a short intermediate descent, you reach the rocky north ridge, do not turn right at the fork, but climb to the summit without any problems. The descent is the same as the ascent. Much more rewarding, however, is the descent from the start of the north ridge to the left to the Ulfaser Alm, Mark. No. 2B and 2A. From there, follow the Waalweg on a gentle slope to the "Pfarrer" and descend on the ascent path to Christl.
