From the Breslauer Hut you follow the ascent to the Wildspitze for a short time, but soon leave the path to the right (junction "Urkundkolm / Ötztaler Urkund). In steep hairpin bends or over small rock steps it goes up to a saddle, finally not difficult in the blockwork or on a good path to the inconspicuous summit with cross. The descent is on the ascent route.
