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

Summer 2023 access update. They are currently building a new dam behind the existing one and the access footpath across the old dam from the Gromsel Hospitz is closed. It looks ilike it will be shut for a long time to come. The footpath is accessed from where it says "Kraftwerk Grimsel 1 & 2" on Google maps. You need to either park by the main road and walk down to it or it may be possible to drive to this point from the turnoff bu the "Grimsel, Summerloch" bus top and park at the end of the path. Either way it adds a chunk of time and effort onto the walk in!
