Auf leichten Pfad zu den Seen. Weiter durch Blockfelder bis an den Fuß der Rosskartscharte. Im Aufstieg zur Scharte sind im Spätsommer Steigeisen erforderlich. Über den Grat in der Kletterroute (2 - 3 Seillänen) zum Gipfel. Vom Gipfel lohnt noch eine überschreitung zum Winnebacher Weisskogel. Abstieg auf die Südseite der Rosskartscharte unbd über eine leichte Kletterei hinuaf zur Schrte und hinunter ins Gleirschtal. Beim Restgletscher allzu steile Moränenhügel meiden. Unter dem Schott befindet sich Eis.
