Kärntner Storschitz, 1.759m
Summit cross
Kaerntner Storschitz/Pristovski Storzic is a 1.759m high mountain in the Karawanken region, Eastern Alps. It is in the community of Eisenkappel-Vellach/Zelezna Kapla-Bela (555m high), on the border to Slovenia. There are several ways to the summit.

Kärntner Storschitz, 1.759m

The shortest approach comes to the summit from the saddle ‘Seebergsattel/Jezerski Vrh’ at 1.218m. On the Austrian side we first follow a good forrest road (some 300m), then the marked path goes over an alpine meadow and through the forrest, until it becomes steep and exposed (‘Krainersteig’ which is a Via Ferrata of the easiest type A). Here the route is secured with pegs and steel ropes. Through a short ravine we climb to the notch in the south ridge and on the other side proceed by western slopes. Through pine bushes the path reaches the open summit ridge and the summit itself. 1h 45min. Much longer are approaches from the north and west (Troegern/Korte). There are also ways from farms below the Seebergsattel (saddle).

From the top you have a wonderful view to the Steiner/Kamnik Alps, Karawanken, Triglav Group, Lavantaler Alps and also Tauern Group.
You can make a round tour if you go down in north direction through mountain pine (Pinus mugo) to Kepp, 1.633m. There you go right to Pasterksattel (saddle), 1.401m and back to Seebergsattel. It takes about 2 hours back.
