Bärenfalle (bears’ trap) – Hammerwand (hammer wall) - 1200 hm / 6 hours

Altitude difference up and down 1200m; walking time: 6 hours. Challenging excursion.
A stronge rise through the bear trap. The climb-down brings us through the Knüppelweg, a strait canyon. A hiking tour with wonderful views going through impressiive walls. The route leads by an original, great mountain world, between the “Schlern” rocks on the side and the hammer wall on the other one.
Return to the hotel at about 5 p.m. Possibility of refreshment at the Tschafon hut between mid April and beginning of November.
Description
From the hotel (1175m) leads over the path signed as “Rundwanderweg” to the Tschamin hut.
A short way after the bridge, the path climbs on the right side and climbs up to the "Tschetter-loch", a. 20m deep mystic rock cave.
Further the way goes on ever more steeply and more arduously between cliffs up to the Tschafatschsattel, (2069m), 2 St. The actual Schlern high surface begins here above.
From the Tschafatschsattel you descent by a Alpine forest down to the “Sesselschwaige” and then further over the “Knüppelweg” path by a narrow ravine, down to below the Schlern walls (1800 m).
From there leads relatively more evenly rise by forests under the hammer wall. Now again a lighter ascent bring you in approx. ¾ hour to the Tschafon hut. This is the only a turning possi-bility of this route!
The last stage returns over a light descent back to the Cyprianerhof.

Highlights
Wonderful views accompany on these impres-sionist walls. The route leads by an original, great mountain world, between the “Schlern” rocks on the side and the hammer wall on the other one
