Via Leiberweg, sometimes over climbing routes blasted into the rock fac, on to Mannheimerhütte via the Brandnertal glacier (cleared & generally well passable) to Schesaplana. Descend to Totalphütte on a well-used path (caution snowfields in spring!) to Lünersee and on the Böser Tritt (or by Lünerseebahn) to Schattenlaganthütte. On foot or by bus (valley station) back to Brand.

Gamsfreiheit | Bludenz
From the mountain station on alpine path to Tiefenseesattel. Fabulous view of Marul (Großes Walsertal), to the Kellaspitze opposite and Rote Wand. Continue on Elsalpe, across alpine pasture with a slight incline and up over dwarf pine slopes and the steep west flank to Gamsfreiheit. Somewhat steeper climb in the top section is worthwhile due to the unique view of the Rätikon with Zimba and Schesaplana, Silvretta, Bregenzerwald, Klostertal, Montafon and Brandnertal. Descent as ascent.
