Some bolts, bring lots of slings and a few nuts / smaller friends.
Classic arete climb on limestone. Mostly mellow, but the crux pitch felt pretty hard for a 5b+... There are harder alternatives (5c+ to 6a+) on three pitches (see topo). The first one was ok. The second one would have required a dicey traverse, and the third one some moves on loose holds before you can clip the first bolt.
Continue arete to peak, downclimb or short rap. We used the "2. Ausfluchtmöglichkeit" (emergency exit): follow the short visible trail down from a notch, do a 60m rap (double ropes) from good anchor. Cross over to the hiking trail from there.

The name "Schafberg" (sheep mountain) is there for a reason...
Despite the easyish grade, this route should not be underestimated - some route finding skills required. We passed on the second and third pitches of the harder alternative, as the second one starts out with a dicey traverse, and the third one is a bit loose.
