Now you hike up the mountain side above the chalet and soon reach Brettersee Lake. Further uphill - passing by East of Kampspitze - you then walk by above Klammsee Lake. Next, you walk along the West face of Schiedeck and then traverse its ridge to the East face. If you also want to reach the summit of Schiedeck, it takes an additional walking time of about 45 minutes.
From Schiedeck you continue North - now the Dachstein massif is always in your view. Via Hochfeld (the detour via the summit takes only 10 minutes) and the prominent stone pile of "Hochfeldmandl" you continue to Guschen summit via "Schneider" (a small summit covered with dwarf pines). From Guschen you enjoy a great view to Obertal valley and Rohrmoos.
From Guschen summit you descend to Latterfußsattel mountain saddle and continue on trail n° 60 to the gras covered ridge of Rossfeld. The wooden coat of arms of Rohrmoos is a landmark on its summit. Via Hüttecksattel mountain saddle you finally reach Hochwurzenhütte Inn on the summit of Hochwurzen. From there you take Gipfelbahn Hochwurzen cable-car back to Rohrmoos.
