Climbing Motorhead – Eldorado

Two hours drive from Chamonix we can start our 1h30 hike along the Grimselsee towards the compact granite slabs of Eldorado. Motörhead is an amazing line following smooth crack and dihedrals from the start till the very end. 500m long Swiss classic, 14 pitches, and only the belays are bolted. The rounded and flaring cracks demand a certain experience with placing trad-gear, and the route is continuously grade 6a climbing.

This late August day, the cracks are still a bit wet from yesterday’s rain, but the sun and the wind is on our side and after a few pitches its good friction.
