The second day begins with an easy descent.
After 10 minutes we turn left on the moraine and descend about 100 meters to the glacier stream.
After crossing the brook, the path leads first over grassy flanks, later over scree fields in approx.
2 hours up to the saddle.
Shortly before the Keeskarscharte a rock band (secured by a wire rope) leads to the crossing.
Over steps it goes first steeply downhill towards a rock head.
From here we have a wonderful view of the Schönachkees with the Zillerkopf.
A well-secured trail leads along lush green meadows down to the Pasteinalm and on to the Issalm.
Passing the snack station Lackenalm we leave the Schönachtal and reach the village Gerlos.
