This mighty limestone peak rises at the northern front of the 'Totes Gebirge' (which means the dead mountain range and belongs to the Northern limestone Alps). The 'Totes Gebirge' is the largest karst plateau in Austria and its highest point is the 'Grosse Priel'. Its major rock components are 'Dachstein' limestone and dolomite. That's why hikers can find a great variety of carstic features, such as sinkholes ('Dolinen') and caves ('Karsthohlen'). Other mountain peaks are 'Schoenberg' (the beautiful mountain), 'Spitzmauer', 'Loser' and the 'Kleine Priel'. Best hiking maps are the (general Austrian map) OEK 25 (1:25000, map # 97) and the Freytag & Berndt 1:50000.
