wanderweg83Heavenly views  Sucess!
I climbed the Schilthorn from Lauterbrunnen during a backpack through the Bernese Alps. My highest summit to date, and by far the most beautiful. My friend and I started early in clouds and fog. About 5-10 minutes after summitting, the clouds parted, giving stunning views all around. As a James Bond fan, I also enjoyed the Piz Gloria quite a bit. One of my favourite memories.

I first climbed the Schilthorn while visiting the Gimmelwald YH when I was 18 in 1980. The hike up via Schilt and down was a blast. In 1984 I toured Switzerland by mountain bike and cycled to Gimmelwald again. This time, after the summit I followed the ridgeline towards the Hundshorn and descended into the Selfinen valley due south and passed through some lovely farmsteads. Passed through Brunli on my way back to Gimmelwald. Fantastic outing, stunning views.

I hiked up from Birg. The route is hardly a scramble but only a rough trail in some places. I did not need to use my hands. The views from this peak are very impressive. We had a sea of clouds.

Was hiking in the valley after seeing this amazing waterfall type thing blasting through this cavern only to find there was suddenly this mountain you could get a ride up. The others in my party were less keen on hiking so that's what we took that and had some great views from the top. This is the only mountain in Switzerland I went to that I could track down the name of. Back in my youth I suppose I didn't care quite so much about them.

Hiked with the wife from Murren... enjoyed the James Bond experience on top. She's a good sport, but convinced me to take the gondola back down - lucky, given the tremendous thunderstorms that followed shortly later.

Up in 3h15 from Gimmelwald (via Murren) then ran back down in 1h30 - got some funny looks but had a train to catch. The top was a bit strange after seeing no one the whole walk.

Great hike from the Gimmelwald with some mates from the hostel. Spectacular views of Monch, Eiger and Jungfrau. Great fun glissading down.

Hmmm. Lots of dangerous weather that day. Only went part-way and took the gondola most of the way for fear of dying from lightening strike on this dirt track so early in our vacation. We plan on returning when there is snow.

Beautiful hike from Gimmelwald - went late in the day so nobody was at the top when we got there. Stunning views!

Nice and easy but long trip. We were lucky with little snow on the trail.

We enjoyed the walk but not the big restaurant on top of the schilthorn.

Background: Grad school days. Group of three travel buddies. One of those "14 countries in 12 days" survey trips. To save on hotels and time, drove all night (rental car) and did the tourist thing all day. Allowed two whole days in Switzerland to exhaustively cover the country.



Day 1: Climbed from valley floor up to villages on lower slopes of Schilthorn. All-day scrambling and exploring.

Day 2: Due to shortness of time, did the cable car to summit, enjoying chocolate cake and views of Jungfrau. Sometimes the tourist thing is OK.

My friend lost his glasses glissading down on cardboard from the restaurant and spend hours searching the snow until he finally found them.
