From the Rotbachtal in St.Johann
Shortly before the village center of St.Johann, turn left towards Gasthof Stallila (+1,472 m). There is the parking lot. From here you follow on footß the forest path to the Daimerhütte (+1,862 m). From now on you continue on path no. 23 in steep hairpin bends to the Rotbachkees (no glacier equipment required, mostly only firn). Follow the path to the end of the valley and then keep to the right. It continues over glacial slabs, secured with new steps and wire ropes. You can reach the Schwarzensteinhütte via this well-marked path. As a variant, you can descend via the Trippbachtal, past the Kegelgasslalm and the Russbachalm and take the forest path back to the car park.

From the Trippbachtal in St.Johann
Shortly before the village center of St.Johann, turn left towards Gasthaus Stallila, after approx. 1km turn right towards Russbachhof. The parking lot is about 200m past the farm. For the ascent, follow path no. 19 to the Russbachalm and then on to the Kegelgasslalm (+2,109m, overnight stays may also be possible). From there it continues via the "Große Tor", which is followed by a short descent (approx. 150hm) into the Rotbachtal. Follow the path to the end of the valley and then keep to the right. It continues over glacial slabs, secured by new steps and wire ropes. You can reach the Schwarzensteinhütte via this well-marked path. A second variant of the ascent would be to climb from the Kegelgasslalm via the Trippbachkees to the Schwarzensteinhütte, but glacier equipment is required for this.
