Ascent Trip Report

Took train with mountain bikes from Zurich to Unterterzen, in canton Glarus. Then transfered to gondola to Tannenbodenalp (1391m) at Flumsaberger ski area. We than climbed on mountain bikes up dirt road to near top of ski area at Maschgen-kamm (2010m). Then a decent to Fursch (1792 m). From hear the trail to the pass was more difficult and we had to carry the bikes for the majority of the way. The decent to Schwanden was fantastic taking over 2 hours. The first part was very technical and the second part was on dirt roads.
