The tour

The beautiful, south-west-facing rock wall of the Sinabell is visible over a long distance. In the morning, it lies in the shadow and in the afternoon, the sun shines right into the wall. At the summit exit, a mountain flower-meadow invites you to take a break. The long ascent is well worth it and compensated by the wonderful view to the mountaintops of the Ennstal valley and the Schladming Tauern, overlooking the high plateau “Am Stein”, with the Dachstein in the background.

Turn-by-turn directions

Approach: The south face of the Sinabell rises steeply to the east of the Guttenberghaus hut. Follow the path winding up to the Feisterscharte, when you are beneath the rock falls of the Sinabell turn right to the entry point.

Descent: From the exit right at the summit of the Sinabell, hike down across the meadow of the back of the mountain to the Feisterscharte. Markings: stone cairns and red dots. Follow the path back to the Guttenberghaus hut. Alternatively, you can take the trail no. 618 (‘Königsetappe’) and opt for the descent via the Silberkar gorge. Hike back passing by ‘Jausenstation Fliegenpilz’ hut to the car park at Feistererhof hotel.

Please note: Approach to the Guttenberghaus hut  (Austrian Alpine Club hut) from the car park at Feistererhof takes 2 to 3 hours, with 1000 metres height difference. For the alternative descent via the Silberkar gorge, a maintenance fee is charged.

Getting there

Arriving from the north:
From the south-east take the Pyhrnautobahn motorway (A 9) to the Liezen junction and then the Ennstal A-road (B 320) into the Schladming-Dachstein region. Then take the Ramsau am Dachstein turn-off.

Security

Klettersteigen ist ein anspruchsvoller Sport inmitten herrlicher, rauer Natur. Bitte beachten Sie einige Regeln zu Ihrer Sicherheit:

* Klettersteig-Touren sind kraftraubend und erfordern Kondition, Schwindelfreiheit und Trittsicherheit.

* Unbedingt immer ein Klettersteigset und einen Helm verwenden und im Sicherungsseil einhängen. Viele Bergrettungseinsätze sind auf Leichtsinn und schlechtes Wetter zurückzuführen.

* Viele Touren sind ganztägig. Unbedingt immer die Möglichkeit eines Wetterumsturzes in die Tagesplanung miteinbeziehen. Vor allem bei der Kleidung und dem Proviant beachten.

* Stets rücksichtsvoll verhalten. Andere Klettersteiger respektieren und über Gefahren informieren.

* Sorgsam mit der Natur umgehen!
