Alpine experience
Medium-length mountain tour, which can, however, be extended to an interesting circumnavigation of the Rosengarten massif. The ascent and descent via the via ferrata require absolute surefootedness and alpine experience due to the short climbing sections on the approach. All the belays were completely renewed in 2013.

Access: Climb above the Rosengartenhütte (open from around mid-June to the end of September) üvia partly secured rock steps, then üvia trail no. 542s to the entrance; the upper part leads exposed and unsecured üvia short climbing sections (I–II) to the entrance. Characteristics and technical details: A via ferrata, not fully secured with steel ropes. A short ladder on the vertical ascent. Access partly via exposed rocky path, short climbs in I. and II. Difficulty level. In spring, the winter snow can remain for a long time in the exposed ice gully. The most difficult part in terms of climbing technique is at the exit from the ice gully. Descent: Back via the via ferrata or through the Gardeccia basin and via the Tschagerjoch: from the Santnerpasshütte (not always open) just below the exit to the Gartl- and further to the Vajolethütte (marking no. 542s). 542s), continue along the road to the fork in the path to the Tschagerjoch (signpost no. 541). Descend steeply into the Joch
