Starting point is the chapel in Maria Hilf. From there head for the Lappachalm. From the Alm, bear right (route signposts) via a path through a forest to the Hirschbichl and continue, descending slightly to a sprawling hollow to the west of it (up to here it is also somewhat shorter and has less altitude difference from Grünbichl to the Staller-Sattel-Straße). Now proceed via a steep path via Alpine pastures in a south-westerly direction, then bear left to a distinct hollow. Via the grassy slopes which follow proceed between two impressive rocks, somewhat to the left and climbing steeper up to the flanks of the summit. Via this arduous route section, gravelly in parts – in part over rock ledges – up to the summit.
