The tour

From the top station of the Schladminger Tauern cable car, the route continues in a southerly direction past the transmitter mast and over a striking grass ridge up to the summit cross of Hauser Kaibling (2,015 m). Up here you get a small foretaste of the experiences of the next few hours with the view of the Höchstein. Now we go on the free ridge to the south and through mountain pine fields down to the Rossfeldsattel. We continue on path no. 780 under the Bärfallspitze to the Seescharte. Arrived at the Scharte, the view falls to the Moaralmsee, which lies deep below. A narrow and very steep path leads down to the lake. However, our way leads over a steep step up to the Kaiblingloch Scharte. After a short flat stretch it becomes steep again - under the Zwiesling there are a few wire ropes for protection. The last meters to Gifpel are once again very demanding and lead over rocky climbing terrain to the cross. Arrived at the top, the efforts of the ascent are quickly forgotten, the view is indescribably scöhn to all sides. After an extensive rest on the summit, we descend the northeast ridge to the Filzscharte. The path leads downhill over rough block terrain, with intermediate safety devices but without major difficulties. At the Filzscharte (2,213 m) the path branches off to the right to Hans-Wödl-Hütte. Our next destination, the Moaralmsee, is on the left side, we reach the beautifully situated lake after the descent on trail no. 781. The massif of the Höchstein is impressively reflected in the water of the lake. If you follow the little stream that leaves the mountain lake, you come to the alpine pastures in the Gumpental. But our round takes us along the steep slopes of the Bärfallspitze, covered with grass and bushes, back to the Rossfeldsattel (path no. 45). From here we take the shortest path following markings no. 780 or no. 44 to the starting point at the Schladminger Tauern cable car mountain station.
