You're welcome! I'm sure there are people doing the walk in the dark, but locals in a group is less risky than someone on his own who is unfamiliar there. I'm not sure if there are guided tours up there. If you are going for it, I'd recommend to start walking from Brunni (to be reached by bus). That's much closer than the train station of Schwyz. Also you could end your walk a bit past Holzegg, before the real mountain trail begins, which is the riskiest part. I'm sure the view is very nice from there as well.
Alternatives are to book a hut or hotel in the Alps, so you can spend the night and safely enjoy the sunrise at altitude. Here are some suggestions: myswissalps.com/ hotels/mountaintops.
If you can, please let us know how your trip went. Should this thread be closed by then, you can post in the Trip reports forum.
