Parking Kalkstein (1640m)
From the car park along the path to the Alfenalm and continue until you can cross the stream on your left before the entrance to the Marchental. We continue on the left side of the valley over the gentle alpine meadows towards the southeast. Soon the forest opens up to the left and we can climb the steep meadow slope right at the edge of the forest towards the east (straight ahead it would lead under the steep slopes on both sides further to the Marchginggele).
After a final small steep step, we walk diagonally left into the light forest, which becomes flatter, towards the northeast.
At the forest border a pretty plateau opens up and if we look to the right, we can already see the ridge that leads us in southeast direction to the summit of the Gruberspitze (2355m).
Along the ascent route.
Arrived at the bottom of the Marchental it is easier to cross the stream right here with the splitboard and then ride out to the forest path on the other side of the valley. There it continues in one go via the Alfenalm back to the parking lot.
