The white-blue-white marked path leads from the Vermigel mountain shelter to the bottom of Sunnsbiel and then via the Gafallenstafel (2334 m) to the Alpine meadows of Gafallen where small lakes line the path. The path climbs to the Schwarzbach as it passes through firn fields, past large rock fragments and rocky outcrops and across a steep debris field as it goes up to the Gemsstock.
