From Sattental, you will hike up until you reach the enclosed Lake Stierkarsee and can look down at Goldlacken - also known as “the little Klafferkesseln” and onwards through Wildlochscharte to the peak of the Hochwildstelle - one of Styria’s highest mountains.

From Sattental, you will hike along a stream up to Lake Stierkarsee. However, you will not climb up to the lake; rather, you will continue upwards to the Goldlacken (no. 26).

You will continue going uphill until reaching Goldlacken’s small valley. Once you arrive at Goldlacken, you will arrive at hiking trail no. 702, which, coming from the Breitlahn cabin, leads a short distance upwards to Trattenscharte (2,048m). Then you will cross the Wildlochscharte where the south ridge begins to form the peak of the Hochwildstelle. Here, you will begin your climb to the peak via the Blockgrat.

WARNING - only for experienced and sure-footed mountain hikers!

 

Alternative climb:

Heading northwest, through the little Wildstelle to the Obersee continuing towards the Hans Wödl cabin. After a brief rest, continue climbing to Styrian Lake Constance.

Author’s recommendation

You can take a detour down to the Stierkarsee (1810 m).
