Very, very hot weather...
Down: Hans-Hernler Steig
Around and on top of Traunstein in one day
up: Hans-Hernler-Steig + Traunsee Klettersteig
Did the via ferrata combination twice (Sep 27, 2014 and Oct 3, 2020):
Hans Hernler Steig - Traunsee Klettersteig - Naturfreundesteig.
Missed the Naturfreundesteig and went up the Hans-Hernler-Steig instead. A guy coming down was very hard, teaching us some mountaineering rules. Also we didn't have all winter equipment. On the upper parts there were quite some snow, also some steep sections. Descended by the Naturfreundesteig, which was free of snow. So it turned out even better than planned.
beautiful but strenuous hike if you do it in one day
