New Meetup: Via Ferrata Mürren

From: Mari
Sent on: Monday, August 30, 2010 2:22 PM
Announcing a new Meetup for Zurich Hike & Outdoor!

What: Via Ferrata M?rren

When: Sunday, September 5,[masked]:15 AM

Where: Z?rich HB
in front of Ticket counter, underneath Niki de Saint Phalle's angel (a.k.a. big weird-looking angel) hanging from the ceiling


Finally I managed to organise Via Ferrata! I received the following offer from Swiss Alpine Guides:

Via Ferrata M?rren (1640m above sea level):

An easy level mix between hiking and climbing

Traverse a vertical mountain pass with the use of fixed cables, steel
ladders, "Nepalbr?cke", and an 80 meter long of hanging bridge
Full safety instructions, including the use of modern belay systems,
ferrata equipment will be given by our qualified mountain guides.
No experience necessary

* Start Time (11am) or as requested
* Duration 4.5 hours
* UIAGM Mountain guide
* Via Ferrata safety set, boots. helmet, backpack, climbing harness and
technical equipment
* Transport from Interlaken - pickup Interlaken Ost
* CHF 130.- per person (minimum 6 participants)

What To bring ?
- Picknick and water
- warm clothes
- Sunglasses, sun cream
- Camera

The train schedule is the following:
Z?rich HB ab 08:32
Change in Bern 09:29- 09:35
Change in Spiez 10:02- 10:05
Arriving in Interlaken Ost at 10:28

Return on Sunday evening (6 pm train from Interlaken Ost arrives in Zurich at 8 pm).

Because the return train ticket would be 63 CHF with halbtax to Interlaken Ost, it does not make much sense to buy group tickets (-20% would be 50 CHF). I suggest to buy 9Uhr Tageskarte (if you buy 6 times ticket, one day will be 45 CHF).

In case of bad weather or any other stronger force, I will keep the right to cancel/change the trip. Please check the status once in a while, specially the night before the event.

See you on Sunday, fingers crossed for good weather!
