Between Ridnaun and Pflerschtal valleys
From Sterzing over the Roßkopf to the Dolomite peak.

From the northern edge of Sterzing (950 m) first take the cable car up to the Ro;kopf (approx. 1900 m). From the mountain station turn left following the signs for the Ridnauner Höhenweg (Ridnaun Hiking Trail) on the wide trail, which climbs gently at first and then flattens out through woods and meadows to the west until, not far from the Kuhalm below the trail, Steig 23 branches off to the right (signpost »Telfer Wei;en«); now follow this through steep grassy paths up to the Ochsenscharte in the southeast ridge of the Telfer Wei;en (2168 m), left on the marked path along the ridge for a while and then easily up the partly stony east flank to the east summit (2566 m). From there, through a short and narrow rock chimney (holding rope), steeply down into a saddle and beyond on a small trail, also equipped with holding ropes, up over rocky crags to the main summit with the cross (2588 m; 3 hours from the cable car mountain station). Descent is the shortest via the described ascent
