Less direct than the ascent via Tätsch, but a more likely starting point, since the Furkapass road is usually only cleared up to Hotel Tiefenbach.

Route description

Tiefenbach - Albert-Heim-Hütte

From Tiefenbach (2106 m) head approx. 300 m along the pass road to the bridge over the Tiefenbach (2126 m). Climb the south-facing slopes up to the bowl of Älpetli and follow the line of the stream NE towards the Schafberg. Bear NW towards the lake at 2500 m avoiding the steepest terrain, then arc round E to reach the hut.

Realp - Tiefenbach

If the road is not open, or if you are arriving by train you can start directly from Realp; follow the road to P. 1619, then cut off the hair pins by ascending straight up W towards Chumme and on to Hotel Galenstock (closed in winter). From here join the road again and continue along to Tiefenbach.
