We start at the Alpengasthof Bodenbauer in the face of the mighty rock faces of the Hochschwab area and first climb at the foot of the Hundswand to the no longer managed Trawiesalm. From here the path becomes steeper and also more alpine. In numerous hairpin bends and finally over a steep meadow ridge we reach the ladders of the "G'hackten".
Over these (surefootedness necessary!) it goes steeply, but always well secured, upwards. So we quickly stand on the wide plateau of the "Schwaben", not far from the yellow Fleischer bivouac box.
In foggy conditions, the way ahead is not so easy, because the path leads us directly across the plateau to the 2,277m high summit of the Hochschwab - the highest point of the BergZeitReise has been reached.
A mighty summit cross and an equally mighty - magnificent view await us on the broad summit plateau. Only a few steps eastward and we see our destination for today, the new Schiestlhaus. The last part of today's hike, the descent to the house, takes about 20 minutes.
Therefore, here is a tip for the problem-free walking of the BergZeitReise also in the time of the hunting closure.
"Unintended" additional benefit - so we can also visit the Green Lake, voted in 2014 as the most beautiful place in Austria.
