Route description

Schwändital parking - Dürrenbüchel (P. 1587)

From the paid parking at the end of the paved road, follow the slightly rising gravel road via Sonnenstafel up to Alp Stadtboden. Reach the end of the road ca. 1540 m and continue straight on, along the marked footpath to P. 1587 and the watershed north of the Dürrenbüchel.

Dürrenbüchel P. 1587 - start of the S-Grat

Cross the watershed into Trepsental (signpost), branch off to the right of the main path, drop slightly into a hollow and climb out the other side, then contour round to the top edge of small patch of woodland. Continue horizontally over scree beneath the eye-catching brownish slabs, then gradually ascend 60 m into a small meadow above another, sparser patch of trees, from where you traverse, slightly descending, to the start of the ridge.
