At the end of Gries  starts the ascent to Nisslalm which lies at 2.051m. At the beginning, the path is still very flat. After crossing the Vögelasbrücke, the slope noticeably increases. After a short while, the path branches off to the right. The hairpin bends now creep upwards at a moderate incline. The entire route is lined with pine trees and the Schrankogel (3,497 m), in the rear Sulztal, catches the eye. The hut sits on a plateau and offers a great view of the Sulztal. After a refreshing drink it's back to Gries.
