The amazing Grimsel Pass

One of Switzerlands top granite cliffs, Eldorado is found near the Grimsel pass. Located near to the Grimsel dam the area is a fantastic two hour hike with high alpine peaks, vibrant green trees and ferns, waterfalls, glacial valleys full of massive boulders and snow, a huge lake and a golden orange crisp  granite wall rising 600 meters. It truely is one of the most scenic and peaceful areas. The cliff is full of multipitch routes from 5c to 7c, following flacks, corners, cracks and featured slabs. Motorhead 6b first bollted by the Remy brothers is a super enjoyable route because it has bolted belays, yet still retains a trad climbing feel.
