Stories, information and comments from Passo del Grimsel climbers
Story by Qian Cao from Hamburg, Germany, submitted on 18/10/2016
Check the weather before you start. The day I went has a rain forecast during the lunchtime. So I started the climb by 8 am. I reached the top and the road was fully covered by fog. Beware of the traffic in that situation.

On the top there is a small shop selling postcards and foods, as well as a restaurant. I got some free drinking water from the restaurant.
