Krönten Hut–Spannort Hut

The flat trail from the Krönten hut to Obersee crosses the bridge and ascends right towards Oberseemanndli. Before the last elevation the route brances to the left towards the ridge. You follow this path until Steinmann on the Graw Stock (2,456 m), then continue to upper Graw (2,570 m) via smooth-sanded cliffs and firn fields.

In front of you lies the wide glacier of the Glatt firn. With security rope you cross this glacier in the next two hours. But wait! There is a variation with less cracks on the glacier! Take the path gradually to the left towards the west cliffs of Schwarzstöckli. A fascinating high alpine world surrounds the route. The cliff faces of Schlossberg fall vertically into the depths and the weathered towers of the broken Spannortgruppe give you a unique alpine experience. Between Schwarzstöckli and the east of the Gross Spannort, the alpine trail avoids the jumble of cracks and after a glacier hollow reaches an ascent over the noticeably yellow-red dolomit rocks of Schlossberglücke (2627m). With solid ground again under foot, you climb down over snow and scree next to the Schlossberg west flank and enjoy, after the 700 meter descent, the possibility to replace some calories at the Spannort hut (1956m).
