Long but rewarding route to the top


From the bottom of the valley, below St Gertraud (1385 m) strictly follow marking 108 and signs for Kirchberg; the wide Güterweg and part of the paved pathway lead you through Kirchberg valley to Kirchbergalm (1893 m, refreshments, 2 hrs. from starting point), now turn left and follow track 13 mainly through woodland up to a more even section, then via some clear slopes to Seefeldalm (2242 m, a herdsmen's hut, no refreshments); at the fork turn right (still on track 13) over grassy terrain up to a gorge at the start of the northern ridge (2647 m) which you cross to reach the summit in a further 20 minutes (2752 m, 2:30 hrs. from Kirchbergalm, 4:30 hrs. from staring point). – For the shortest and safest descent follow the same route (3 hrs.).
