What a drama...in terms of road surface! Especially after the barrier..drainage holes..gravel..cracks and holes. Especially in the descent it's a massacre for your material because it's 10%+. Furthermore, the views are fantastic and you only encounter some hikers and workmen. This is n... read more

Started this climb from Flattach, just before Ausserfragant. The climb starts off scorching right away and immediately fills up your legs. This is followed by a bit of a descent and heads towards the Mölltaler Gletscherbahn. From the barrier, things really take off and the road surface deteriorates dramatically. This, of course, only makes the climb harder. The trick is to still try to enjoy the fabulous scenery. The higher you get, the more beautiful, especially when the galleries loom. Look back regularly too, as you get a great view of the road travelled. The final kilometres fortunately ease off a bit and once past the ski station, the last few metres are incredibly enjoyable. The panorama at the summit with the dam and the lake is insanely beautiful! It quickly makes you forget the suffering on the way!

Deze klim aangevat vanuit Flattach, iets voor Ausserfragant. De klim begint meteen verschroeiend en laat je benen meteen vol lopen. Daarna volgt een stukje afdaling en gaat het richting de Mölltaler Gletscherbahn. Vanaf de barriëre gaat het echt los en verslechtert het wegdek dramatisch. Dit maakt de klim er uiteraard alleen maar zwaarder op. De kunst is om toch te proberen genieten van de fabelachtige omgeving. Hoe hoger je komt, hoe mooier, zeker wanneer de gallerijen opdoemen. Kijk ook regelmatig eens achterom, want je krijgt een prachtig zicht op de afgelegde weg. De slotkilometers zwakken gelukkig wat af en eens voorbij het skistation is het ongelooflijk genieten van de laatste meters. Het panorama op de top met de dam en het meer is waanzinnig mooi! Het doet het lijden onderweg snel vergeten! Ik koos eieren voor mijn geld en heb de (ondergrondse) skilift naar beneden genomen.

The surface is bad, but it is possible to ride a road bike. Watch out for drainage grooves and fairly large holes when going downhill.

What a drama...in terms of road surface! Especially after the barrier..drainage holes..gravel..cracks and holes. Especially in the descent it's a massacre for your material because it's 10%+. Furthermore, the views are fantastic and you only encounter some hikers and workmen. This is not a climb you do for fun... it is a beast! I ride 34x34 and found it very hard....

Wat een drama… qua wegdek! Vooral na de slagboom.. afvoergaten..gravel..scheuren en gaten. Zeker in de afdaling is het een afslachting voor je materiaal zeker omdat het 10%+ is.. verder zijn de uitzichten fantastisch en kom je alleen wat wandelaars en werklui tegen.. Deze klim doe je niet voor je plezier even.. het is een beest! Ik rij 34x34 en vond het zeer zwaar..

I have done the climb on foot, so I can't tell you anything about the severity and the condition of the road surface for cyclists. In general, the latter seems to be fine.
It is an incredibly beautiful climb in terms of scenery and views, especially after the valley station of the Glacier Express. Very little traffic (actually none, except 'other' cyclists). Dress well though, because it can be chilly on top of the mountain.

Ik heb de beklimming rennend gedaan, dus kan niets aangeven over zwaarte en staat van het wegdek voor fietsers. Over het algemeen lijkt dat laatste wel prima in orde.
Het is een ongelooflijk mooie klim qua natuurschoon en uitzichten, zeker na het dalstation van de Gletsjer-express. Heel weinig verkeer (eigenlijk geen, behalve 'andere' fietsers). Goed aankleden wel, want het kan fris zijn bovenop de berg.
