Description

Located just 1.5 hours east of Salzburg, the Schober-Frauenkopf is an excellent mountain for some easy climbing with gorgeous panoramic vistas!

After meeting up in Fuschl at the Ruine Wartenfels parking lot, we will make a pretty easy half-hour approach through the evergreen forest.

Once we arrive at the base of the rock, we will spend the next two hours making a very logical climbing ascent following a well-defined ridge line.

The average difficulty of the climb will only be UIAA3, meaning plenty of options to pause and take in the beautiful valley and lake below us.

From the summit, we will enjoy panoramic views out over our surroundings, taking in stunning scenery defined by snow-capped, green fields and Lake Fuschl.

Once we are finished with the view, it’s an easy hour-long hike back down to the parking lot.

Depending on the weather and what time we start, you may want to take the time after our adventure for a refreshing dip in the lake.

So what are you waiting for? Book now for this leisurely yet incredibly scenic day-long climb up Schober-Frauenkopf near Salzburg, Austria!

If you like the look of this trip, but are looking for something a bit more intense, then I think you will enjoy my day-trip climbing the Königsjodler via ferrata on Hochkönig, also near Salzburg!
