Route description

Trail no. 550 starts at the Kölner Hütte and leads to the "Pas de Coronele" (2,630m). From here you can see the crossroads that we reach on the descent over the steep slope at the "Coronelle" pass. At the crossroads, we take path no. 541 to the "Cigolade" pass (2,552m), which leads us to the Rotwand hut.

Change path for the last time and follow path no. 549 ("Hirzelweg") and hike on a slight incline at the foot of the steep walls and rock spires of the Rosengarten back to the starting point at the Kölner Hütte.
