We started at 8:05 AM from Melag and continued along route no 3 (Weisskugel Hohenweg). It took 2:25 h to reach the Huette, On our way back we followed the route no 2 (with some bypass at the bottom of th valey - the original route was damaged by stonefall and thus closed). The way back took 1:50 h.
At the beginning the route is wuite steep and narrow until one reaches the wooden cross. Then it becomes less steep until the crossing  with the route no 1A. then the path levels until it meets the route no 2. Then these two numbers goes together until the huette and the path becomes steeper again. Some 5 minutes before the house one spots the sign that tells it is the last place with cel phone coverage.
The way no 2 consists of two stages: first stage follows the Karlinbach at the bottom of the valley and then turns left when the second stage begins. the second stage is all the way steep hiking until it meets the route no 3.
