Crag features

Eldorado is near the Grimsel Pass, 2165m, in the Bernese Alps. Head to Grimsel Hospice 1980m, located on the northern side of the pass. The hospice is also a bus stop, with buses serving both sides of the pass.

Approach notes

Descent: follow cairns down a channel to right looking at the wall. Maximum attention when wet! Follow the tracks up to a further channel that seems impossible to get off especially when wet (almost always), to right, down, on a spur of the lines we have to double, you should do it. Also for channels, tracks, water slides and swamps to reach a wooded area, find a passage between it and return the vague path between the various streams. Eventually we arrive at the camp under the big rock where they left their packs (if the leg is to be found!). 1 hour good.
