The devil chose the shortest route. However, since the stone was heavy and even the devil has to rest sometimes, he put down his heavy pack with the stone inside it. In his rage and fury against the farmers, he had failed to notice that dawn was breaking and that the verger in Terento - who was an early riser - was already ringing the bell for morning prayers. So the devil had to leave the stone there and flee back down to the underworld. That is why the unusually large piece of rock from a faraway glacier can still be seen to this day in the middle of the forest at roughly 1700 m, above the Nunewieser inn.
