Pass Tiarms

Located in the Swiss Alps, the road to the summit is unpaved. It’s a pretty short drive starting on the west side of the Oberalppass. 4x4 vehicle required. Accessibility is largely limited to the summer season. It is a somewhat bad gravel road with steep parts. Adverse weather conditions are common. Always check the weather forecast before you start your journey. The view from the summit is really nice. When climbing toward the Oberalppass from the west you are likely to believe this is the place you are heading for (before you come closer), so it is easy to find. There is a steel wire across the beginning of the last short and steep ramp to the pass (around 18%).
