The mighty Dachstein, the eastern bastion of the Northern Limestone Alps, are a sheer crown of dramatic jagged peaks and cliffs rising to almost 3,000m on its south-western rim.
2,247m Rotelstein is an outlier of the great southern cliffs, and has exceptionally exciting views.
It can be tackled in its own right, or as a superb add-on to both the Pennerweg and the Linzer Weg.
The path is tough and it is more than 400m above the 1,825m Sulzenhals pass, so not to be undertaken without thought.
