Klausen Pass or Klausenpass is a 1948 m. pass in the Swiss Alps connecting the cantons of Uri and Glarus. The pass road from Altdorf leads through the Sch├Ąchen Valley, the pass and Urnerboden to Linthal in Glarus.

The first section up from Altdorf is mostly scattered villages, with a good surface so it can be pretty fast. From Untersch├Ąchen the road narrows and buses and caravans are banned (except the post-bus). It used to be bumpy but has now has a brilliant surface all the way. The eastern side is a wide valley blocked by a steep wall which the road somehow avoids, the road itself is a dream!

We rate this route as medium difficulty
