This area has been signposted as part of the "Environmentally friendly mountain ski climbing" initiative of the DAV. Please follow the instructions to ensure that you do not disturb the wood grouse.  

On the forest road, cross the stream before immediately turning left and following the street until you are behind the Hundsfäll rift. Climb up to the right through the light woodland on the North-East ridge of the Scheinberg until you come to the summit area via clear slopes from the right.

Ascend on foot to the summit itself via rock ledges with wire rope support.
