Intended Schedule:


Day 1 - 13:00

From the meeting point at the Hotel Furkablick, Realp, we start hiking in the direction of the "Camels".

These are two striking granite needles located at 2900 hm, with an impressive view of the Furka area. After about two hours of hiking on scree, we reach the highlines, which will be already set up.

Depending on our guests wish and climbing skills it is possible to either climb one of the camels in multi-pitch climbing style or to directly start highlining by ascending a fixed rope that leads to the top of the camels.

After an afternoon full of action, we rappel down to the base of the camels and relax in front of a vegetarian grill. Setting up of a base camp or descent to the nearby hut.

 

Day 2

After a warming breakfast we approach the camels again for another long session of multi pitch climbing and highlining the camels humps. Around 13:00 we start dismantling the lines and walk back to the starting point Hotel Furkablick. End of the adventure around 17:00.
