Turn-by-turn directions

From the Tierstallerhof farmstead, head north along trail no. 66a following the signs to Monte Sommo-Sambock. Cross the meadows to where the woods begin on the right. Take the forestry road until you reach the first left-turn hairpin bend, then continue along the old cart path. Later, head east on the forestry road until you reach the Stockpfarrer meadows. There, keep left crossing the meadows and a small patch of forest followed by more pastures. Hike past the two huts and keep right towards the edge of the forest. Continue straight ahead, first through the thick woods and then through the lighter Swiss pine woodlands until you get to a steep slope. Please note: This 200 m slope leads onto Monte Plat-Auf der Platten, a secondary peak of Monte Sommo-Sambock, and is the most difficult part of the hike. It can be slightly tricky if there is a lot of fresh snow, so please be extra careful!
From Monte Plat-Auf der Platten, hike along the ample ridge and up another two short slopes to get to the peak. Return along the same route.
