From the Gablonzer Hütte to the Stuhlalm or Theodor Körner Hütte (1 ¾ hours)The hiking trail begins with trail number 611 in a south-westerly direction up to the northeastern Törlecksattel, 1599 m, and then flatly across to the south-westerly Törlecksattel, 1576 m.

Here the normal route branches off to the Großer Donnerkogel.

Now downhill to a cattle trough, there left on a stony path to the Schefferbergwald forest and then slightly uphill and downhill, crossing the steep slopes of the Großer Donnerkogel into the Sulzkar.

There you can enjoy a magnificent view of the Bischofsmütze.

Through this channel with wooden steps and wire ropes up to the Jöchl, 1601 m.

The path now continues flat for a longer time towards the south, crossing the Kare Lehenhüttenkar and Langtal until you reach a small insert.
