1-1,5 hours from mountain station Elferlift and in 25-30 min. along a comfortable serpentine-path to the Elfer hut. Further on in south direction to Elferkofel, until - after 20-25 min. - the access-path to north-face route (sign: „Nordwand-Kletterroute“) branches-off on your right-hand side. On a constantly yellow-signposted path („Gamssteig“) you cross the steep flanks below the Elfer-towers to a mountain-ridge. From here you already have a good view into the distinctive north-gorge. On the diverting, yellow-signposted path (on south-west direction the path leads to „Zwölfernieder-saddle“) straight ahead and always on your left hand side upwards to the start of the belays. Routes and path – course: Please see ascent-view.
1-1,5 hours; Climbing-down the summit face again to mountain-ridge, passing the back-side of a big clamping-block and climbing-down a short way (1+) to a steep chimney. Downwards the chimney (C/2-), crossing a band (A/B) and short two-way ascent to „Elfer-saddle“ (signposted). Now either the north-way back to Elfer hut, or ideally the „Elferkofel via ferrata“ (B to c/2-, crossing) further on to „Zwölfernieder-Scharte“.
