Beskrivelse
The small mountain village of St. Nikolai, at the turn-off for the Sölkpass, the beautiful onion dome of the church set against the magnificent backdrop of the Knallstein.  Just beyond the car park at the entrance to the village, we make a right at the trail crossing and keep on the forest lane for about 30 minutes.  At the first big bend, an alpine trail heads steeply uphill, a shortcut to bypass the extended switchbacks of the forest path.  Walking through beautiful high forest, we pass the tree line and come to the Kaltherbergalm, with the first 500 vertical meters now under our belts.

After these alpine pastures, our next climb already awaits (300 m), leading us up a steep ridgeline into a beautiful cirque, nestled amid which are two picturesque lakes, the Unterer & Oberer Klaftersee. The subsequent climb takes us to the left of the lakes, then up via a spur of rock accompanied by beautiful views back towards the lakes, an island of reeds and meandering streams.  This section is filled with variety, bringing us relatively quickly to the next lake, just 300 m higher up: the Weissensee, elev. 2,229 m.  After the gap, the mighty figure of the summit shows itself in all its immensity.  In a giant semicircle, the rocky cirque with peaks as high as 2,500 m encloses the western side, while our ascent on the summit first takes us along the mountainside, then along the ridgeline itself.
Only once we are on the ridge, do we have open views to the N, W and S.  This significant peak towers above all other mountains within a wide radius, promising views that are exceptionally impressive.  During our long hike down, we have plenty of time to take a close look at the various types of terrain; from rocky cirques to green alpine pastures, from larch forest to dark high forest.
