Climbing to the hut from Ridnauntal
The former Schneeberg mine in Maiern/Ridnaun (head of the Ridnauntal valley) marks the starting point. From there you hike along trail 9 via Aglsboden up to the GrohmannhÃ¼tte (2254m). You then continue to the TeplitzerhÃ¼tte (2586m) and from there, via boulders and well-secured walkways with wire ropes and stepping brackets, you cross a moraine until you find yourself below Becher rock. The last leg leads you on winding paths until you reach the Becherhaus (3195m).Â
Altitude difference: 1800m elevation gain
Walking time: approx. 6,5h
Alternative ascent via the Red Ridge from the Ridnauntal
The trail leads from Â the end of the valley in Maier to the GrohmanhÃ¼tte Â and continues to the Teplitzer. A little further on towards the Becherhaus and then, at Â the NÃ¼rnbergerhÃ¼tte junction, follow trail no. 6A to the Rotgratscharte. The trail is Â well Â marked Â and continues left to the Rotengart peak, where a new cross was erected in 2021. Accompanied by the Â wonderful view of the Becherhaus Â on the left, you reach the Signalgipfel at 3390m.
If you wish, you can take a short detour to the Wilder Freiger, otherwise descend along the secured east ridge to the Becherhaus, where you can spend the night or take the normal route over the Becherfels, after some rest and refreshment.
