The hike starts in pristine Kaiserbachtal valley, at the foot of the Wilder Kaiser’s northern walls. Follow the trail to Kleines Griesner Kar, a glacier plateau surrounded by rocky ridges. At the cirque, pick up the faint path through the scree field to your left and switchback up to the rock walls of Lärchegg. (Please note: the trail is hard to spot!). Continue along the well- signposted trail through the rock up to the peak. Parts of the trail are secured with steel cables where you can clip into for added protection. Backtrack to the cirque. Stay to your left and continue into the valley until you reach Fritz-Pflaum-Hütte (not serviced). The hut sits amid a barren yet stunning rock landscape and is one of the most isolated huts in the Wilder Kaiser Mountains. Climb down through Großes Griesner Kar to Kaiserbachtal.
