Klettersteig group - trip to Braunwald EGGSTOCK
Calendar: Social Events
Forum Veteran
*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: Braunwald - Glarus
Event Type: Sports
Meeting Point: Zurich HB

I propose a trip to the EGGSTOCK where there are 3 routes A,B and C which are all connected.
They are graded at KS3 - 5 respectively and the suggested duration for theA and B together is 4.5 hours.
Therefore I would propose that we do on A and B, then see how we feel before carrying on.
This will be my second trip to EGGSTOCK, having previously completed the A and B routes - I would like to have a go at the C if possible.
I will travel by train from the Zurich HB to Braunwald via the Braunwald bahn which leaves at Linthal.
There are 2 proposed starts from Zurich HB:
06:12 - arriving in Braunwald at 08:32
Second one is around 07-15 from Zurich HB - I will check that.
Then we can either hike up to the start or take the cable car from Braunwald to Gumen (1904m)

I know which start time I would prefer (06:12) but I would go with the majority . . . subject to any interest of course!

As I stated in an earlier post for the Klettersteig group - I am not a leader with any qualifications - I am just organising the trip.
You will need :
Walking shoes or boots
Klettersteig kit including harness
gloves (optional)
Please be aware that this trip is not suitable for total beginners (in my opinion).

I cannot stop you going without the neccessary gear - but for sure you will not be coming with us if you turn up without it - sorry about that.

just as a side-note: you can rent the klettersteig kit and helmet for about 30chf at the hut after the last cable-car arrival. have no clue how many of them are available though.

PS: it is a really spectacular view from up there

Well in the end, as I was on my own . . I went to the Graustock via Ferrata near Engelberg.
The weather was glorious and it needed to be because it was the hardest via Ferrata that I have ever done.
I did put a few pictures in an album - if anyone wants to see them, check my profile albums.
There should be time for a couple more trips before the winter sets in . . hopefully.
