Driving in August 2020; once you have turned off from Innerfragant in the direction of Oscheniksee, then it quickly becomes quiet and calm. I met another cyclist on my ascent and that should also be rather rare. Whoever wants to conquer this "Carinthian monster" should hurry up here, though: the condition of the ascent becomes increasingly catastrophic.
Besides the landscape (you drive into a rocky and natural landscape that is usually reserved for hikers), a special gimmick is the marking of the hairpin bends by very small signs beautifully inserted into the rocks. The reservoir itself is then quite unpretentious and would be in itself rather not worth an ascent. Be careful on the descent; you should note breakfast board sized holes in the road surface as you go up. I myself have not felt the ascent as hard as expected from descriptions; the Lammersdorfer hut lying in the extended neighborhood seemed to me much more torturous...

Befahrung im August 2020; ist man erstmal von Innerfragant abgebogen Richtung Oscheniksee, dann wird es schnell still und ruhig. Ich traf bei meiner Auffahrt einen anderen Radfahrer und auch das dürfte eher die Seltenheit sein. Wer dieses „Kärtner Monster“ bezwingen will, soll sich hier allerdings beeilen: der Zustand der Auffahrt wird zunehmend katastrophaler.
Neben der Landschaft (man fährt oben in eine Gesteins- u. Naturlandschaft die sonst eher Wanderern vorbehalten bleibt) ist ein besonderer Gimmick die Auszeichnung der Kehren durch sehr kleine schön in die Felsen eingefügte Schilder. Der Stausee selber liegt dann recht unprätentiös und wäre an sich eher keine Auffahrt wert. Vorsicht bei der Abfahrt; man sollte sich Frühstücksbrettchen große Löcher im Straßenbelag schon beim Hochfahren merken. Ich selber habe die Auffahrt nicht als so hart empfunden wie von Beschreibungen erwartet; die in der erweiterten Nachbarschaft liegende Lammersdorfer Hütte erschien mir wesentlich quälender…

This 'Zoncolan of Austria' is located in no man's land. The difficulty is hardly expressible, even the profile says little or nothing here. The climb to the dam is actually prohibited for traffic, so you drag yourself to the top in peace and quiet, while the hairpin bends follow each other at high speed on a poor road surface. There is no moment of recuperation. It's a hard job to get to the top, but once you're out of the forest, you can fully enjoy the phenomenal views. At the top you'll be rewarded with a beautiful picture of the lake and the 360 degree panorama. In short, an animal of a climb, but a pure adrenaline rush once you reach the top!

Deze 'Zoncolan van Oostenrijk' ligt in niemandsland. De lastigheid is nauwelijks uit te drukken, zelfs het profiel zegt hier weinig of niks. De klim naar de stuwdam is in feite verboden voor verkeer, dus je sleept je in alle rust naar de top, terwijl de haarspeldbochten zich razendsnel op een pover wegdek opvolgen. Er volgt geen moment van recuperatie. Het is harken tot boven, maar eens je uit het bos komt, kan je volop genieten van de fenomenale uitzichten. Op de top word je beloond met een prachtig plaatje van het stuwmeer en het 360 graden panorama. Kortom, een beest van een klim, maar een pure adrenalinerush eens je de top bereikt!
