Grimsel Pass & Furka Pass
The Rhône river rises from the Rhône Glacier which can be seen towards the top left of the picture. The Rhône Glacier has shrunk dramatically due to climate change since around 1900 when the glacier reached the buildings at the valley bottom.
In the foreground are the six hairpins of the Grimsel Pass with a 405m. elevation gain to the top of the pass at 2,164m. In the background can be seen one of the most dramatic climbs in Europe, the Furka Pass.
