After the Grabneralm we follow the path 636 to the Admonterhaus (1 hour walking time). From there we follow trail 634 first up the Mittagskogel. The path, partly secured with ropes, has alpine character and requires surefootedness.
The easy and short way from there to the summit of the Natterriegel should not be missed.
For climbers the via ferrata to the Hexenturm is worthwhile(1 1/2h.)
The best thing is to staya night in one of the huts!
