Start from Wochenbrunner Alm, as described in the main section.

Route Description

Follow the gravel road to Gaudeamushütte (closed for traffic). You will reach this cottage (1267 m) after some 30 minutes. From there, a clearly marked trail leads up to Ellmauer Tor (1995 m), the second half of which is gravel. But as the trail isn't too steep, the gravel presents no problem.

From Ellmauer Tor, follow the sign to Hintere Goinger Halt. This last part is steep, but doesn't demand rock climbing techniques. A few rocky passages are secured by cables.

Essential Gear

Hiking gear, good shoes in particular. No wells above 1267 m, so have enough water. It's a South slope, and the sun will be burning.
