Starting point
We go to Dobbiaco and from there into the Höhelnstein Valley (direction Cortina) until we reach Schluderbach. We go ahead on the left in the direction Misurina. Shortly before the village, we turn left over the private street to the big parking place Auronzo Hut.

From Auronzo Hut we follow a large road to Paternsattel and further to Drei Zinnen Hut. Behind the hut begins the red signed way to Toblinger Knoten. We turn left below the south-wall and we reach the access to the north-wall.

From the top over the north-east.
