We took the cable car from St. Ulrich to Seiser Alm – see yellow cross, then walked track 6a to Icaro Hutte, track 3a to Compatsch 1844m, down to 1727m, and up a chairlift to Spitzbuhl 1935m, track 5  to Panorama 2009, track 6 to Ritsh 1841m, track 6b then 6 to Sanon,  Sole, and back up to Mont Seuc 2005m = 6,500ft to catch the cable back down to St Ulrich.

Yellow marks the walk. Total distance 11.5 miles  Total time 6h.5 hours.

The walk was relatively easy, but it was steep to return to the cable car and the chair lift was not open until the following weekmap
