The tour

Ascent: Along the street towards the mountain rescue hut. After this hut you walk on the right side through a high forest in the direction of the Kaltenbachalm. Along the summer check marks to the Mittlere Kaltenbachsee.
From here on there are two possible variants. The first one is the easier one: you walk southwest-wards and pass the Obere Kaltenbachsee on the left side and across the Ertrachboden to the Deneck.
The second variant would be: you walk northwest-wards towards Sonnkar to the Deneck. 

Turn-by-turn directions

Ascent: Along the Sölkpass road in the direction of the mountain rescue hut, after this right through the sparse high forest in the direction of the Kaltenbachalm. Along the summer markings to the Mittlerer Kaltenbachsee. Continue in a northwesterly direction over the saddle to Sonnkar. In a wide curve through the Sonnkar to the summit.

For the descent there are 2 variants:

Option 1: Same as ascent

Option 2: Over the Sonnkar towards Sonnkarhütte. From here in the area of the summer path in the fall line to the road.
