Meeting point is at 12:00 h in front of the office of the Bergsteigerzentrum Aletsch in Fiesch. The leading mountain guide distributes the technical material to the participants. Afterwards we take the gondola to Fiescheralp and from there to Eggishorn. From there we hike in about 30 minutes to the start of the via ferrata. After a short break we start the climb. After about 2-3 hours and 305 meters altitude difference we reach the top station of the cable car Fiesch - Eggishorn. Here we enjoy the breathtaking view of 40 four-thousand-metre peaks and the largest ice stream in the Alps, the Aletsch Glacier. From there we take the cable car back to Fiesch.
