This wonderful high-altitude tour in the Sterzing Ratschings / Vipiteno Racines hiking area starts from the "Hölle" car park in Innerpflersch / Val di Fleres. From here you take the slightly uphill path no. 6 to the Furtalmalm hut and then continue to the Magdeburger hut. High above the valley floor, hikers can enjoy a magnificent high-altitude tour in the Sterzing Ratschings/Vipiteno Racines hiking area. A path leads from the Magdeburgerhütte hut in a north-easterly direction. Please pay close attention to the markings that guide you through very steep places before you reach the rocky expanses. The southern side of the mountain is equipped with ropes and clamps. Once you reach the fork, the final very steep climb leads to the imposing Weisswandspitze / Parete Bianca. On the way back from the South Tyrolean high-altitude tour you return to the fork and take the path to the east, which runs through a wide rocky strip along the western flank of the Hoher Zahn / Dente Alto. The downhill continues eastwards and then turns north. Keeping to the right, you cross the southern slopes of the Pflerscher Pinkl. To return to the valley, the path leads in a south-easterly direction with a view of the Tribulaun hut and the beautiful Sandessee lake. From here you descend along a path to the starting point.
