"Shortly after setting off from the Oberdorf train station, we reached the climbing area named 'Bubichöpfli'. Like colourful lizards, passionate climbers were climbing up the wall high above us. The path led us to the Hinterweissenstein via Gartenmatt in steep U-curves. From there onwards, the tour truly lived up to its name. The snow-capped Alps glittered in the distance. Far down below, the Aare river was winding its way across the Swiss Central Plateau."
