Story by Vinnie from , Switzerland, submitted on 20/06/2014
This pass may not be the most difficult one in the swiss Alps, however one of the most beautiful for sure.

The gradient is pretty regular, between 5,5% and 7%, except one km before the famous Belvedere hotel, where it goes up to 8-10% -- not considering the wind which can be very unhelpful in this section. In addition, you can start feeling the lack of oxygen, being at 2''200 m. high.

Anyway, it''s worth a short stop at Belvedere to enjoy the views behind the hotel.

Story by Andee from Birmingham, United Kingdom, submitted on 12/08/2011
Wonderful switchbacks on the final section past the RhoneGletscher.Road is smooth and perfect for cycling (as opposed to the downhill into Realp).Viewing the route up Furka from the summit of the Grimsel pass is fantastic too
