Geocache Description:


"Drive in Cache" speziell für Motorrad Fahrer (und andere...)
"Drive in Cache" especially for motorcyclists (and others...)

Der Grimselpass (2165müM) verbindet Innertkirchen (Kt. Bern) mit Gletsch (Kt. Wallis). Die Passhöhe liegt auf der europäischen Wasserscheide (Aare -> Nordsee; Rhone -> Mittelmeer). Ein kleiner See schmückt die Passhöhe.
Die Nordseite ist eher langgezogen. Sie führt an einer Reihe von Speicherseen vorbei, welche sich ihr Wasser von den umliegenden Gletschern erhalten.
Die Südrampe ab Gletsch ist kurz, serpentinenreich und steil. Die Aussicht zum Rhonegletscher und zum Furkapass ist genial.
Dieser Pass gehört mit Sicherheit zu den "Traumstrassen" für die (Motorrad-)Fahrer. Es wird das volle Alpen-Programm geboten: Serpentinen, abwechslungsreiche Kurven, viele Aussichtspunkte, höchste Berge, Gletscher undundund...

Grimselpass (2165 m) connects Innertkirchen (Kt. Bern) with Gletsch (Kt. Wallis). The top of the pass is part of the european division (River Aare flows to the North Sea; River Rhone flows to the Mediterranean Sea). There's a nice little lake at the top of the pass.
The northern part is the longer one. There are some lakes on the way up. They all get their water from the glaciers around.
The southern part is pretty short with lots of U-turns and it's very steep. There are lookouts over to Furka Pass and to the Glacier (Rhonegletscher).
