Route description: Start at the Pfeishütte mountain hut and follow trail 221 (= Via Alpina) east as it gently climbs up to Stempeljoch col, which is located 2,215 metres above sea level on a ridge between the Pfeiser Spitze and Stempeljochspitze mountains. From there, the trail leads steeply downhill over a scree field. WARNING: in early summer, there may still be a large amount of old snow on the Stempelreise scree field. This snow freezes solid and becomes extremely hard in the mornings (be sure to take crampons and poles with you)! After following the trail downhill for about 140 vertical metres, turn left on to the Wilde-Bande-Steig trail. Snow fields are also often found at this point. From there, the trail leads below the east and south faces of the Stempeljochspitze, the Roßkopf, the Großer Lafatscher and the Kleiner Lafatscher mountains with very little variation in altitude as it undulates gently towards the Lafatscher Joch. Before reaching the Lafatscher Joch (2,081 m), you have to complete another ascent with an elevation gain of around 80 metres. From this point, follow trail 222 (= Via Alpina) as it gently climbs east through the Kleines Speckkar and Großes Speckkar corries. During the last part of the hike before the Bettelwurfhütte mountain hut, you get far-reaching views of the Hall Valley and the Inn Valley. The hut is perched proudly like an eagle’s nest on the south face of the Kleiner Bettelwurf mountain.
