The first day in Kandersteg was spent setting up tents and settling in. The leaders still recovering from the journey like to run a hike on the next day and they like it to be one they don't have to think much about. Our old friend, Oeschinensee via the Wanderruksack checkpoint at Biberg. But it wasn't enough to keep the Explorers entertained so they embarked on an additional loop to pick up a few Gold Wanderruksack checkpoints.
SCOUTS: Total Distance 10.5k and Total Climb 701m (A nice warm up)
EXPLORERS: Total Distance 17k and Total Climb 1354m (Just a bit more than Ben Nevis.... as a warm up!)
