Falkertsee, a little lake on top, a small ski area where it is home to Heidi und Peter.
Below is a mega big statue of Heidi, so it could be a nice friendly climb.
When my cycling buddy suggested this climb, I thought, what should I do with a 6 km climb one day, we'll do two or three in the neighbourhood.
When I saw the profile, I got a different idea. 9.9% average over 7 km is not a breakfast climb.
As he is much slower than me I let him take a 15 minute lead. Unfortunately after the first turn I was already behind him. The first kilometer is on 14%....
After about 4 kilometres of suffering you come to a resort with luxurious wooden alpine houses, where the rich of the world stay during the holidays, very relaxed and luxurious. I drove on and enjoying the view to my right I could see it was going up fast. The worst was yet to come, although you don't notice it. The forest slowly gives way and there's even an S-curve... The road is good and there is not much traffic, but you see the 10% and more going up in front of you and it is still 2 kilometers. Then, when you almost give up, the mountain god does a little more and you see 13, 14 and even 16% passing by. I didn't know that you can make warm asphalt stick to the ground on such steep terrain...
Once at the top, you can relax a bit and find a place at the lake, some shade, a strudel and a drink and forget about the torture to Heidi!

Falkertsee, een meertje boven op de top, een klein skigebied waar het thuis is van Heidi und Peter.
Beneden staat een mega groot beeld van Heidi, het zou dus wel eens een leuke vriendelijke klim kunnen zijn.
Toen mijn fietsmaat deze klim voorstelde dacht ik, wat moet ik met een klim van 6 kilometer op een dag, we doen er maar meteen twee of 3 in de buurt.
Toen ik het profiel zag kreeg ik een ander beeld. 9.9% gemiddeld op ruim 7 km is geen ontbijt klimmetje.
Daar hij een stuk langzamer is dan ik liet ik hem 15 minuten voorsprong nemen. Helaas na de eerste bocht reed ik hem al achterop. Let wel de eerste kilometer is meteen aan 14%....
Na een kilometer of 4 afzien kom je bij een resort met luxe houten alpen huisjes, hier verblijven de rijken der aarde tijdens de feestdagen, erg relaxed en luxe. Ik reed verder en genietend van het uitzicht aan mijn rechterkant zag ik wel dat het snel omhoog ging. Het ergste moest nog komen, al heb je dat niet in de gaten. Het bos wijkt langzaam en er is zelfs een S bocht... de weg is goed en er is niet heel veel verkeer maar je ziet de 10% en meer voor je neus omhoog gaan en het is nog ruim 2 kilometer. Als je dan bijna opgeeft doet de berggod er nog een schepje bovenop en zie je 13, 14 en zelfs 16% voorbij komen. Dat je warm asfalt kunt laten plakken op deze steilte wist ik niet...
Eenmaal boven kun je een beetje uitbollen en een plaatsje aan het meer zoeken, schaduw, strudel en een drankje en je vergeet de martelgang naar Heidi!
