The ascent via the forest paths to the Plodenalm is leisurely. From the alpine pasture, the route goes uphill through the north-facing ditch. On the ridge you have a good view of the inconspicuous summit cross. Choose the descent depending on your experience in the ascent track and oncoming traffic. Located on the edge of the Gesäuse in the Eisenerzer Alps, the Blaseneck is one of the most beautiful ski touring mountains. In the upper area, there are several downhill options on the north side.
Or via Leoben, Vordernberg and Eisenerz to Hieflau and from there via B146 in a westerly direction into the Gesäuse.
A1 Westautobahn to exit Ybbs and from there south through Scheibbs, Lunz am See, Göstling an der Ybbs and Palfau to Hieflau. From there take the B146 in a westerly direction to the Gesäuse.
In the National Park there is only one intersection worth mentioning, namely the one into the Johnsbachtal (coming from Admont after approx. 11 km and coming from Hieflau after approx. 15 km). Follow this road (L743) about 10 km into the valley. Go through Johnsbach past the famous Kölbwirt inn until you reach the Zeiringeralm car park (with information boards) at the end of the road on the left after the Ebnerklamm car park.
Here we keep to the right to reach the summit slope via a ridge. We climb steeply over the ridge to the summit with its fantastic view - the mountains of the Gesäuse to the north and the Niedere Tauern to the south. The descent is identical to the ascent route.
