You can start your tour at the mountain station First or you can bridge a few meters with the chair lift Oberjoch. The first option is to follow the winter hiking trail to the Faulhorn to Bachalpsee. On the right-hand side of the shelter, you leave the footpath and head south towards the crossing "Hireleni". Now you're almost there. Continue walking down from the ridge to "Spitzen" and you will reach the summit via the east ridge.
Depending on snow conditions, you can choose between the north or south slopes. This usually gives you good conditions. At the mountain guesthouse Waldspitz you can follow the winter hiking trail to Bort depending on the snow and avalanche situation or choose the steep alternative via Niederbach to the gondola station.

Mountain station First or Oberjoch
The tour is suitable for skiers and snowboarders (splitboard or snowshoes)
The slopes north of the winter hiking trail First - Faulhorn are situated in the federal hunting ban area and should not be used. The descending traverse from the Oberjoch is tolerated, but it must not be climbed in these southern slopes.
A game sanctuary extends from the southern slopes of the Reeti to the slopes west of Uf Spitzen. Therefore, it is essential to leave from the east side.
For detailed information, check out the Freeride Guide Jungfrau Region or the SAC ski tour guide Berneroberland Ost (number 238/ 329).
