Petzeck

The Petzeck is the highest mountain in the Schober group, yet technically, it is one of the easier three-thousand metre mountains of this rugged mountain group. The ascent passes the largest mountain lakes in Carinthia, the dreamily located Wangenitzsee and Kreuzsee.

Description

From Seichenbrunn car park, bear right, crossing Debantbach and take the well signposted route via the lower wind gap area between Kreuzsee and Wangenitzsee to the Wangenitzseehütte. The signposted path there proceeds east initially past a climbing section (steel cable secured), then in a northerly direction, on a path which is steep in parts, finally featuring via glacier remains, soaring up to the highest summit in the Schober group.
