Bates and Anthony in the snow will really help them. I think they'll win their 4th leg this next week.

except that Bates&Anthony do better on ice, instead of snow  :)

I have a gut feeling that there's going to be an INTERSECTION in this leg.
I don't know I kind a miss an INTERSECTION. It's been quite long since the last time they had one

My view of the place where the Cheese throwback takes place is that it is obviously not in Interlaken (thanks for the correction, iamthebalance; they were on Kleine Rugen Wiese in the Interlaken area; that leg 1 of AR14 did start in Locarno but went to the bungee jump location and then on to Interlaken). There are a huge range of possibilities of the country we associate most closely with alps:

Bernese Alps near    Vaud, Fribourg, Valais, Bern    
Uri and Emmental Alps near    Uri, Bern, Valais, Lucerne, Obwalden, Nidwalden    
Glarus Alps near    Uri, Glarus, Graubünden    Tödi, Glärnisch    Seeztal
Appenzell Alps near    Appenzell Innerrhoden, Appenzell Ausserrhoden, St. Gallen    
Chablais Alps            near Valais    
Mont Blanc massif    near Valais    
Pennine Alps            near Valais    
Lepontine Alps         near Valais, Ticino, Uri Graubünden    
Oberhalbstein near   Piz Platta
Plessur    near Aroser
Albula    near Piz Kesch, Piz Lunghin
Rätikon    near Schesaplana
Silvretta   near Piz Linard, Piz Buin
Samnaun Alps    near Muttler
Bregaglia near   Cima di Castello, Piz Badile
Bernina    near Piz Bernina, Piz Roseg
Albula    near Piz Kesch, Piz Lunghin
Livigno    near Piz Paradisin
Ortler Alps near    Piz Murtaröl
Sesvenna near    Piz Sesvenna

I am going out on a limb to guess that teams will land in Zurich nonstop from Johannesburg and take a train to Valais. The wide range of options near Valais are shown above. My analysis of transportation will be in that thread.

Imagine they do an Intersection with the Cheese! :lol:

Highly doubt that'll happen though

My view of the place where the Cheese throwback takes place is that it is obviously not in Locarno. My guess is that it is somewhere in the Obernese Alps.

The Cheese task took place in Interlaken originally, not Locarno.

Yeah, the cheesehill is in beautiful downtown Interlaken. The mountain climbing appears, to me, to be next to one of the windows on the Jungfraubahn, under either the Eiger or Monch.

I predicted the Valais canton of Switzerland earlier. Included in that canton are Brig and Visp, both of which are on the rail route to Zermatt:

Lower Valais:

    Conthey with capital Conthey
    Entremont with capital Sembrancher
    Hérens with capital Evolène
    Martigny with capital Martigny
    Monthey with capital Monthey
    Saint-Maurice with capital Saint-Maurice

Upper Valais:

    Brig with capital Brig-Glis
    Goms with capital Münster-Geschinen
    Leuk with capital Leuk
    Östlich Raron with capital Mörel-Filet
    Westlich Raron with capital Raron
    Sierre with capital Sierre
    Sion with capital Sion
    Visp with capital Visp

I am further refining my guess to Brig or Visp (both south of and at higher altitude than Interlaken) as the area in which the climbing takes place. The cheese  throwback could be there or nearby.

Guess!

Why don't you just draw a 20 mile radius around Eiger and claim every town inside the circle.   :lol3:

Phil on the Jungfraubahn above Interlaken and Grindelwald. (From Chateau's identification in the sightings thread)



To the right of the climber is the "window portal" from the train tunnel.

We know from press releases that they climb the North face of the Eiger.

And we have the EXACT locations of both CheeseHill and the TAR 14 PitStop if anyone wants to check it out:
http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,18316.0.html

(Missing pics are those who ATTACHED and diid not embed...they get deleted later :(  )

AND we have several INTRO caps that play a role here, if anyone wants to bring them over.

Thx!

TAR 14 Hut...compare to ours?  Different location?

I recognize that train line up to the Ice Palace and terminating at the Jungfraujoch. I vaguely remember discussion of that observatory in a prior Amazing Race as begin near the Eiger, which is integral to that rail route:

From Kleine Scheidegg a railway tunnel runs inside the Eiger and two internal stations provide easy access to viewing-windows in the mountainside. This railway, the Jungfraubahn rack railway, terminates in the Jungfraujoch, between the Mönch and the Jungfrau, at the highest railway station in Europe.

I have made that trip and commented on it, but I can't remember when.

The Sphinx Observatory in Alenavada's picture above was the focus of Amazing Race discussion on November 30 and February 18.

Here is a picture that may be near the site of the episode 8 climbing, the north face of the Eiger as seen from Kleine Scheidigg.

I suspect that this will be our Pit Stop:  on the grounds of the Hotel Bodmi in Grindelwald
