Orographically speaking, situated to the right of Penaudtal Valley. Very popular due to the wonderful long downhill runs through the Penaudtal Valley. Ascend from Certosa/Karthaus on the road to Farmstead Sennhof and then towards Penaudtal Valley (on a forest path). Rising southwards through the valley until the trail is wider, before the plateau at the Mountain pasture Penaud (2,150 m a.s.l). Take a left here and climb along the steepening lateral valley in a south-easterly direction. Finally, continue to the summit (remove skis, if necessary) over a ridge with a number of quite difficult sections. Descend by the same route.
For good skiers.
