Nice tour from Fisetengrat, summit station via Gemsfairenstock and Gemsfairenjoch. The Gemsfairenstock can easily be "taken in" on route.
From the top station on the Fisetengrat (approx. 2000 m) head southwest along the ridge past Rundloch (2287 m) and into the hollow of Ober Sulzbalm. Roughly follow the line of the summer path over a short steep step, then leave it and head more directly up to the Lang Firn (glacier). Once on the glacier, traverse southwest to the Gemsfairenjoch (2846 m) or "take in" the Gemsfairengipfel (2971 m) on your way.
From the Gemsfairenjoch, descend the short steep (35 °) south slope down to the Claridenfirn (approx. 2670 m). Now turn east and cruise down to P2452 before making a short skate/shuffle/trudge up and over to the hut (if you couldn't keep enough speed;-).

Information about the cable car Urnerboden–Fisetengrat: www.urnerboden.ch/sites/seilbahn_d.php
If the cable car (valley station) is crowded, the ascent to the Fisetenpass may be worthwhile.
The summit of the Gemsfairenstock can be skipped.
