A great tour from Maso Corto up to a splendid summit with a glorious view.
From Maso Corto, we cross the ski slopes (blocked off once they open for skiing!) up to Hochjoch or take the glacier train to Grawand and go downhill from there. From Hochjoch, we go down the Hochjochferner glacier towards Ötztal Valley to about 2650 m. We now climb slightly to the right and continue for a distance in a north-easterly direction until we get to the glacier that stretches up to the wide saddle between Hauslabkogel on the right and Saykogel on the left. Cross the glacier on a moderate slope as far as the saddle. Deposit your skis just above this, at about 3220 m. Go to the left over the gentle ridge to the summit. Descend as you ascended with a sharp ascent of about 45 minutes to Hochjoch.
