Meeting point is at 13:00 h in front of the office of the Bergsteigerzentrum Aletsch in Fiesch. The leading mountain guide distributes the technical material to the participants. At 13:30 h we take the cable car 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.
