Overall facing NW.

Just as we recognize the June Lake Loop as a little visit to Switzerland, so we see the rock of Rush as a taste of Swiss granite.
"Eldorado" is a higher altitude climbing area in the famous Grimsel valley granite region in the center of Switzerland. Known for slab routes.

warning: The rock in this sector has not been climbed much yet, and much of the rock is still breakable and loose -- so the belayer and other people should stand far away from underneath the climber.

Getting There 

Follow the instructions on the Grimsel area description page to reach sector 2 Gerstenegg. Turn Right and hike up SW about 25 feet.
. (17-33 minutes approach via Log bridge)
. (12-21 minutes via Wading the creek)
