Pleasure climbing at its best, this route has a little of everything. It's mostly slab (as the route's name implies), but the 10th and 11th pitches offer up more vertical and slightly overhanging climbing.
From the Scheibenkaser, head to the right on the trail which takes you up to the Hochthron Klettersteig. After walking down this trail for about 15 minutes, you'll reach a scree field with a bunch of large blocks on the right and across from this is a big orange sand slide. As soon as possible, cross above the orange sand and over to the grassy saddle. (Up to this point, you can chart your course to here from the Scheibenkaser). Once you've reached the grassy saddle, head down a little and across the field trending toward the obvious water-flow between the two peaks (see picture). The base of the route is marked and is about 5m to the right of the beginning of Doriweg, which is also marked and has a little sling hanging from the belay bolt at the base.
You have two options. I've only done option 1, so please excuse any errors in the description if you choose option 2.
If you're considering linking pitches, you should probably bring about 16 quickdraws and a few long slings, as well as 70m double ropes. Each pitch is well protected with bolts. A helmet is an absolute must as there is a lot of loose rock.
