Remarks The Rudi Eller Weg is a real alpine route, needing all fours in several places, and with cables to hold on to. Only attempt this route when sure-footed and no vertigo!
During July and August there is a "Wanderbus" that goes from Lienz to the Dolomitenhütte. The Dolomitenhütte itself also has a shuttle (€10 p.p., just call them to reserve). On the way down I managed to get a ride with other hikers.
