Ascent:
Route 1:
from the car park at the valley station over the wide forest path moderately uphill in a few hairpin bends to the alpine pasture Kaserlichtalm.
Route 2: the more difficult route leads from the car park along the ski touring path along the Mahlbach river, steeply ascending through dense forest to the alpine pasture  Kaserlichtalm, then further through the forest moderately steeply until you meet the ski slope again to the right of the alpine pasture Saxnerhütte. Then to the right of the slope over beautifully stepped terrain to the Jaufenkamm ridge to the right of the Saxnerlift mountain station and on the wide grade to the west to the summit.

Descent:
Route 1: From the alpine pasture Kaserlichtalm continue east and in a few minutes to the slope. From there descend on the slope.
Route 2: from the summit back the same way until you reach the slope and then continue down on the ski slope (not through the forest).

Important! After 5pm the slopes are closed for safety reasons.
