I've driven a few passes in Colorado above 10,000 and one above 12,000.
Four are above 12,000 ft, highest at 3,712 metres (12,183 ft).

Nine of those are higher than the top of the Eiger.

If it's the difference in height in a day, one option in Switzerland is 
the cog train to the Jungfraujoch. That's 3,466 metres (11,371 ft). The 
Jungfraubahn is listed as 3,454 metres (11,332 ft). It's not cheap; with 
my ski pass, I never went beyond the Eigergletscher.
You could start from Grindelwald at 1,034 m (3,392 ft) or from 
Lauterbrunnen at 802 m (2,631 ft).
You can drive to either from Interlaken, and there used to be a train, 
so you could start from 566 m (1,857 ft).
