Ice-free from hut to hut From the hut, we first take the approach route in the opposite direction over Lake Seekarsee. Then follows the passage through the so-called heavenly ladder, through which the path descends in serpentine lines. Ropes and staircases facilitate the passage. We walk flat out to an emergency stop (key hangs next to the door), before the path leads to the Seekarsee in steeper terrain. Below the lake, you turn left and take the trail that goes east. After the swampy foothills of the shopping cart, the path winds its way upwards to the top of the Windachferner. You descend to the glacier and follow the path up to the Jochdohle restaurant in the ski area. Beyond the Gaiskarferner, we descend south-east to a rocky ridge until we reach further down the Hildesheimer Hütte.
