Directions
Take the Texelbahn cable car up the Giggelberg to 1,536m then follow Route No. 24, along the Merano High Mountain Trail to the Nasereit Refuge at 1,523m. Route No. 8 leads to the Gingglalm pasture then up to the Zielalm mountain pasture (2,196 m) and finally to the Lodnerhütte mountain hut at 2,260 m. The hut is open in summer and serviced, allowing visitors to stop over-night. From there continue along Route No. 7 for a short distance in a southeasterly direction. The path forks splitting into the Franz Huber Trail leading up to Hochganghaus and Route No. 7 on the mountain trail, a moderately steep track up the grassy slopes, taking you to the Tablander Lacken mountain lakes. Then it’s a hike across a rocky stretch up to the Halsljoch Ridge at 2,808 m  (almost 2 hrs. from the hut). From Halsljoch take a left turn northwest, until crossing a rockface on a via ferrata with chains for a short stretch, up over a steep rock until you reach the summit at 3,037 m. The hike from Halsljoch Ridge lasts about 0.45 hrs and the descent is back along the same route.
