The ski route starts in Lauenen, the charming mountain village with its preserved wooden houses and the beautiful church from the 16th century. From there, the route leads in an easterly direction along the Mülibach stream to the Rütschli. Then follows a steady ascent in southeastern direction via Uf der Flue and Schönebode until shortly before the alp Unders Blatti. There it goes north of the two Blatti alps up to the Fürflue and further over the demanding Blatti ridge to the summit of the Lauener Rothorn.

The descent leads along the ascent track or via Gubihubel, Gschwend, Sulz and Inneri Tüffi back to Lauenen.
