There are several variants for this summit attempt. The route described here is certainly the longest. Of course, you can choose the easy out and back method.

Destination

Blaa Alm Altaussee

Turn-by-turn directions

You cross the Blaa Alm, at the end of which you have to pass a barrier. Then you choose the forest road to the right and immediately left down to the Blaa-Bühel, which leads you steeply down to the Rettenbach.

 

At the bottom, the "Naglsteg" leads over the Rettenbach and the path to the Naglsteig begins. At first still flat and over a brook the way climbs afterwards however ever steeper becoming upward. Soon a head for heights and surefootedness is recommended.

 

You climb steeply up to a short ledge and then continue through the "Naglschlag" and after about 1 1/2 hours you reach the "Anger" and then the hill in front of the Schwarzenbergalm, the "Beerensattel". A short descent leads to the ÖAV Ischlerhütte. Then the trail leads through the alpine area, past the hunting lodge up to Traglstatt, where the trail splits. Follow trail no. 226 to the right up a steep ledge (briefly secured with wire rope) and climbs steeply. It becomes flatter for a short time and then climbs again more steeply through mountain pine area next to the Altarkögerl to the summit.

From there you can enjoy the view from the westernmost two-thousand-meter peak of the Tote Gebirge to the Traunsee, to the Dachstein and into the Tote Gebirge.

 

After the entry in the summit book, continue along trail no. 227 to the northwest, first down into a rocky cirque and then up again until you reach the descent to the Möselhorn.

 

Descend along the ridge of the Schönberg until you reach trail no. 211, there turn left to a steep saddle. Then along the steep slope of the Schönberg along the "Karleithe" to the Traglstatt, where you meet the ascent path again. Back to the Ischlerhütte and at the Beerensattel straight down towards Bad Ischl.

 

At Ahornsberg the path divides. One climbs to the left fairly long and steeply down a tractor path into the Rettenbachtal. Through the Rettenbachtal to the left up to the Naglsteg and over the Blaabühel back up to the starting point. At the end of the tour, a stop at the Blaa Alm is recommended.

Equipment

Proper backpacking makes many things easier: pack heavy things first. The water bottle should always be within easy reach in a side pocket. All things that are often needed, such as sunglasses, camera or hiking map, belong on top. An emergency kit including blister plaster belongs in every backpack and a clothing according to the "onion system" is always recommended!
