From the car park, briefly follow the road and then turn half right onto trail no. 4 + 30. This leads into the so-called Rosslahne to the memorial stone to the avalanche victims of the 1970 military disaster. Immediately behind this, trail no. 29 branches off to the right to the Postmeisteralm. Follow this in many hairpin bends, past rocks and rest stops, up to the Postmeisteralm, also called Gufidaun. Here a fountain usually bubbles up and the terrain becomes flatter. As you continue, you cross the stream, only to reach the upper alpine pasture floor on the opposite side, where the path becomes steeper again through a field of mountain pines. The trail leads up to the left and at the foot of a rock step you cross to a saddle (Törl) at 2361m. Now follow the tracks that lead along the ridge to the summit of the Grosse Rosskopf (2559 m). - Descent: as ascent.
