Route description

From the mountain station we walk past the right-hand side of the mountain restaurant up in western direction. We decide to not use the supply road, but the path next to the meadow fence. Before us we can already see the top “Königsleiten” (2315m). First towards mast, than up a bit towards the mountain station of a ski lift more steeply. Pass it on the right and across a narrow path to the top.

Past the top we walk on in north-western direction. We descend a bit first and cross a supply road. Straight ahead we can see our 2nd goal of this trip: “Falschriedel” (2420m), but first we descend towards the lowest point: “Sattel Scharte” (2247m). Now the sometimes steep but nice climb to the top follows. The top is marked by 2 “Steinmännchen”.

We go back the way we came.

Done in 2004.
