Only in extreme conditions is there a risk of avalanches here under certain circumstances. In any case, check the current avalanche report beforehand. Snowshoe tours are also suitable for beginners.
From the parking lot at the Hochgratbahn valley station, we turn back about 100 m in the direction of Steibis. We turn left into a small valley and soon reach open meadows and the ski slope. We now climb up to the Untere Lauchalpe at 1,000 m and turn right there, cross a stream and climb up on a free ridge to the mountain inn Obere Stiegalpe (1,178 m).
From here, we head west on a gentle incline and pass the steep northern slope of the Eineguntkopf. A somewhat steeper stretch leads us straight to the Falkenhütte inn at 1,439m. Through the hollow, we reach without effort the summit ridge and past some spruce trees the summit. The descent follows the ascent route.
