Turn left and after the Schlosserhof farm turn right. Along the farm road to the junction, then turn right following trail marker No. 48 (forest road) and go uphill through the forest to the Tscharnietalm (1976m, no refreshment facilities). Then continue following the trail marker No. 48, in a southeasterly direction to the junction, there turn right and continue in a southeasterly direction in a stony area on a steep trail (still trail marker No. 48) and arrive at a flat depression on the west ridge of the Kerlspitze (about 2500), turn right along the ridge to a second depression (2438m) and shortly arrive at the Hochstein (2469m).
Alternatively: Below the Tscharnietalm at the first bend turn right and follow trail No. 48B to the "Burg." There turn left always continuing trail No. 48B to the ridge, continue the somewhat exposed trail to the summit.
