>Firstly, can you tell me what P2Ps means?:)<
P2P means point to point. Which means you are going from one place to another with your belongings on your back. Or, if you are on a longer trek, you are carrying your necessary items until your luggage can catch up with you using SBB. If you are staying in remote places this takes 3 days or so.
>Can you tell me which part of this hike is the toughest? Grindelwald - Bort, Bort - Schreckfeld or Schreckfeld - First? <
I'm sorry but I cannot answer this question as I have never done the trek from Grindelwald up to First because it is not a good idea. Here is a website that may give you some more info, but it is all about going down. For going up, triple the times.
>I will probably try to hike to Schilthorn on day 4<
The longer you have to get acclimated to the altitude the better.
>Can you confirm if it is possible to walk from Berggasthaus First to the Bachalpsee without using the gondola?<
Yes, the Berghaus at First is right at the gondola stop. From there you can go to Bachalpsee and further if you wish. Bachalpsee is an easy 45 minute stroll. If you want to arrive in Schynige Platte you need to allow 6 hours. There is a train down from there to Wilderswil.
As you might have gathered from my responses I have been hiking all over this region, been there 15+ times. I have a lengthy document about my experiences which includes lots of hiking recommendations. I have not had success sending it via attachment on this site and there is no longer a capability to send private messages (therefore email addresses). If you would like the document go over to TripAdvisor and search for me under KimSanJose then send me a PM with your email address.
Forum moderaters, please let me know if there is a way I can send my document via your site rather than sending people over to TA.
