[edit] Approach Route

Take the chairlift to Belvedere (1,904 m). From the top of the lift climb a short, steep rise then descend on to the Belvedere Glacier. Cross the glacier (cairns and poles) WSW to a break in the L lateral moraine below Alpe Fillar. A track leads to some ruined buildings (1,974 m) and from there continues towards the first step on the E ridge of the Gr Fillarhorn. Take this track to the step then slant up L in a big couloir down which the stream from the Piccolo Fillar Glacier flows. Cross below steep walls before it is possible to slant back R to reach a steep couloir which leads to the hut.
