From the Martin-Busch-Hut the most beautiful climb over the Marzellkamm. Shortly inland to a stable bridge over the Niederjochbach and over marked trail to the Marzellkamm. Over the ridge to the beginning of the Niederjochfernser and further over the glacier (columns!) Up to the steeeriger Gipfelaufschwung. Now either over Firn or at icing better right over rocks on the ridge and over this, the last meters exposed, over to the summit cross.
