Ascent Trip Report

On a nice Friday in the early evening we made the short drive via Waldenburg to the parking at the highpoint of the road leading to Restaurant Waldweid. From there 40 mins took us south then west, firstly to the viewpoint of Chellenchoepfli, followed by the summit of Hinteri Egg, the highest point of the Swiss Canton of Baselland, and my final P150 summit in the Swiss Jura (of 59). A nice(recently set) obelisk with plaque marks the spot. A couple of celebratory photos later and we were off home for a beer via the nice path running first NW then East back to the starting point
