OverviewThe mountain lays in the Eastern Alps, in the Goldberg Gruppe not far from Mallnitz, Auserfragant or Sportgastein.
There is a beautiful overview on the Goldberg Gruppe especially on Geiselkopf (2974m) and on Feld See.
Feld See is situated west from Feldseekopf and lays in the height of 2206 metres.
Getting ThereIt's easy to get to Mallnitz, Ausefragant os Sportgastein by car. There are some ways to Feldseekopf from other directions which you can reach by car from Böckstein, Flattach, Obervellach or Bad Gastein. From every town the route by car is at about half an hour.
From Auserfragant you can go to Weldsee-haus through Innerfragant to start your route /on Nr.145 or Nr.147/.
From Mallnitz the best is to go to Jamnig hütte /Nr.143/ otherwise it's a bit long to walk!
If you are in Sportgastein you can start your climb at Valerie hütte /Nr.110/ , but it's a quite long way!!!
There are several ways to the mountain and you can combinate them. So at least 6-7 routes help you reach the top. I haven't met anyone during my way up which tells me that it's a quite silent and non-crowded mountain. Nr.143 route goes on the ridge so you can arrive to Feldseekopf from two directions.
Red TapeI don't know about any route or summit fees and seasonal closures. The parking at Jamnig hütte /route from Mallnitz/ is absolutly free, but there may be parking fees if you park your car at the other towns /Sportgastein, Böckstein, Flattach, Obervellach or Bad Gastein/.
The only rule for wildlife conservation is: "Take care of the mountains and the mountains will take care of you!"
When To Climb
It's the easiest to climb in the summer, there could be still some snow then, but crampons or an ice axe are not needed! Most of the people who climb it go in the summer, but as I have written there are only a few climbers. In the winter the area changes into a skiing paradise. So there might be a crowd then, but people mostly go to ski to the Ankogel group. So it's a wonderful pleace for one who wants to be alone with the mountains, nature and God!
It's possible to sleep in the towns /written above/ at about 8-20 euros per night. I'm affraid there is no camping possibility on the mountain. There are houses in which you can sleep /Jamnig hütte, Böseck hütte, Hagener hütte, Duisburger hütte, Mindener hütte/. There is a hut at Feldseescharte /2712m/ on the ridge not far under the top called Dr. Rudolf Weißgerber bivuoac but I've heard that it is only for having a rest, or warming up in bad weather it's prohibited to sleep there. Ther is also a rescue telephone in the hut hopeing that you musn't use it.
Mountain ConditionsI have no information about websites or phone numbers. There isn't a web cam on the top. We can ask about the weather in the towns, in the Mountain Services, they will probably give us setisfying answer!
There is a webcam looking on Geiselkopf in Mallnitz.
