Pfannhorn 2820 metres

The rugged Rieserferner group, the Lasörling ridge in front of the Hohe Tauern and last but not least the Dolomites in the south meet here. Above Pötsch we only stay for a short time in the forest road which turns off to the right and then follow quite a steep forest path up to the Lappbachalm (1928 metres). The route branches off here. We opt to continue via the Hirschbichl (2141 metres) and ascend on this to the extensive hilly terrain to the right across the terrain with trees and shrubbery. There is a remote mini lake. Heading out of a slight depression, where an entrance from the road leads to the Staller Sattel, the actual mountainside of the Pfannhorn begins. Initially via grass slopes, which are replaced further up by rubble and boulders. Bearing slightly left to a sort of ridge and up on steeper, rocky summit sections. Here we continue on the path tracks and from the north east get to the highest point of Deferegger’s Pfannhorn.

Starting point: Maria Hilf Ascent time: around 4-5 hours
