City/Town: Braunwald, Glarus
Event Type: Sports
Meeting Point: Zurich HB

Okay, okay, okay after the horror of Graustock last Sunday,I propose another trip, on Sunday, 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 suggest 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.
See the photos on my gallery for some idea of the trip.
I will travel by train from the Zurich HB to Braunwald via the Braunwald bahn which leaves at Linthal.
There is a train leaving from Zurich HB:
07:12 - arriving in Braunwald at 09-02
Changes are at Ziegelbruecke and then Linthal Braunwaldbahn. From here the cog railway takes us up to the village of Braunwald.
Then we can either hike up to the start or take the cable car from Braunwald to Gumen (1904m)

There is an earlier train leaving Zurich at 06-15 if anyone was an early bird like me

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
Helmet
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.

Good man for organising another trip. Keep up the good work. "Stiff Upper Lip", "Because it's there" and all that.
