Thanks to peter lyssy for adding this peak.

Schafberg is not a very high peak, but the mountain is very isolated and so he looks from the north as a huge and remarkable horn. To the lake Wolfgangsee he shows a steep grass slope, the upper part of the eastside is a long vertical wall.

In St.Wolfgang ( 549 m, 1757 ft) ask for the beginning of the way. Marked path to little lake Mönichsee, then crossing the northern slopes, at last on a steep, exposed path with wire -ropes to Himmelspforte ( gap heaven´s door) and in a few minutes to the top. 6 h from St. Wolfgang. On the top is an hotel. From the top one of the most beautiful views from Austria. Downhill the normal way ( 2 1/2 h) or by rack-railway
