This panoramic summit can be climbed in a few minutes. The path continues northwards and over a ridge you reach the summit cross at Kasberg. The descent from Kasberg to Grünau im Almtal (2 ½ hours)The descent on trail no. 431 initially leads moderately steeply through Latschengassen, then the trail turns west. A rocky, but easy place is overcome with the help of ropes and you then reach the Sepp Huber hut, which stands on an alpine pasture at an altitude of 1506 m. Shortly ascending you continue on the Benn Nock, then on a ridge down to a ski slope, which is followed for a bit. A path branches off to the left and leads to the hunting lodge in Farrenau. The path (no. 431) shortens a bend in the Hochberg toll road, then continues along the road for a short distance, but then turns left on a steep path through the forest down to an alpine pasture floor, 750 m.
