description to arrive at destination
From Merano / Meran to the Passeier Valley in direction of Passo Rombo until the bridge Ponte Tumulo.
From Timmelsbrücke bridge head to Timmelsalm mountain hut and keep to the right until reaching the vast Oberkrumpwasser plateau. Taking a central route across the plateau ascend the steep slope to Hochkar, where another steep slope leads through a splendid glacier basin right to the summit. Attention: the slope to the summit must only be climbed on its East side!
Descent: Once the steep initial section down from the summit has been overcome, there are marvellous slopes with fine powder snow.
