With touring skis over the ridge of the Schafseck on the Piz Minschuns in the Ortler area

From the Furkelhütte (2153 m) on the east ridge to the top lift, 2359 m. Climb up this ridge, which is still wide at first. Further up it becomes narrower and steeper until you reach the border ridge at 2800m. The exit can be made difficult by a cornice under certain circumstances. Now turn right over the ridge to the summit with cross a little further back. Descent as ascent. Depending on the conditions, you can either descend a little on the north slope or on the south slope, but always return to the ridge. These slopes are very steep. Via the Furkel slope to Trafoi.
