I started this hike in Wildhaus, and went up to the summit of Wildhuser Schafberg via the south ridge. From Schäferhütte (1552 m) I followed the ridge on the left side, and not the marked trail. There are some rather steep grassy sections, which were now even more difficult due to sheep poop... I would say it's better to follow the trail (which I did on the way down). From P.1852 on, I followed the south ridge directly up to the summit. It was very warm, so I did not really hike that fast.

The view from the summit was magnificent, especially since there were blue skies with only a few tiny clouds on the horizon.

During the descent I more or less followed the marked trail (red & white). There are still one or two snowfields remaining where the trail goes, but they do not pose any problems. They can be crossed or avoided.

Difficulties:
Ascent from Gamplüt to Schäferhütte on the trail: T3
Ascent from Schäferhütte on the ridge towards P.1852: T4-
Ascent from P.1852 on the south ridge to the summit: T4-
Descent on or near the trail: T3 (except for the snowfields)

Equipment: hiking sticks

Distance: Total hiking distance: 8 km

Remark: This hike can be shortened by taking the Gamplüt aerial gondola up or down, or both. I used it only for the descent.
