Day 3
Early in the morning we start on the Königsspitze, 3851 m. First over gentle terrain, later steeply our route leads us to the Königsjoch, 3293 m. There we deposit the skis or tie them in good snow conditions on the backpack. With crampons we manage the steep climb to the summit. After a break with an impressive view of the north face of the mountain, we gather for the descent. A safe ski technique is required in the steep eastern flank of the Königsspitze. If we have mastered this "challenge", however, the ascent to the Langenferner pass is a "relaxation exercise". From there (after an optional stop in the Casatihütte) we reach via the Eissee pass our starting point Solda.
