The path crosses hilly terrain and in time brings you to the Plose mountain refuge. Continue on eastwards to the descent for the Lüsner Scharte, then follow the path towards the Große Pfannspitze. Pass it, walking along the ridge, and go on to the Kleiner Gabler. From there continue on to the rocky peak of the Großer Gabler, and enjoy the magnificent panoramic views.
