Day 1 - 14:00
We meet at the "Grotte de Glace" in Obergoms and distribute the gear between members. After a gentle start, the hike becomes slightly steeper as we navigate through crevasses and water streams. After approx. 3 hours we reach our base camp at 2680 m and enjoy a warming expedition style vegetarian dinner. We stargaze, enjoy the sounds of the glacier and prepare for sliding into our cozy sleeping bags.
Day 2 - 07:30
Early bird catches the worm! After a quick breakfast we steer towards even bigger crevasses and the majestic Dammastock peak. With its 3630 m this is the highest mountain of canton Uri. The views from the top are unique and the last steep meters to conquer it are easily manageable for first time alpinists as well.
Time to eat a bite. We descend and have a snack break. Depending on the fitness condition of all members and weather we ascend a nearby unnamed peak with some easy scrambling (4a max.). We look for a flat spot for setting up the second base camp at approx. 3000 m, cook a vegetarian expedition style dinner and head for a well deserved goodnight sleep.
Day 3 - 07:30
Breakfast time! Time to pack our gear and slowly descend back to the starting point. Depending on the amount of crevasses this could take up to 5 hours. We can have some breaks in between and snacks if necessary. As we reach the meeting point on Obergoms, safe and sound, we distribute the gear again and finish our epic journey on ice.
Non-climbers are very welcome to join the adventure, as the climbing part is not mandatory (it's possible to have a break at the base of the climbs). As well no previous experience in glacier travelling is necessary.
