One of the tougher climbs I have done. Very irregular. Roughly 3 parts. First part out of the valley, especially the first 2 km steep (9% gem). After about 4km you get a flat(er) part. The last 5km are really hellish. 10% average. The part with hairpins between the trees is doable, but once you ... read more

It is a very nice and beautiful climb to do. In the beginning of September, it wasn't very busy. The end of the climb is pretty steep.

Very nice climb, but due to bikers it can get a bit crowded although not too bad. Last 5 km the road narrows and remains very steep all the time. Rienk's comment to descend along the other side to the first hairpin bend is definitely worthwhile. There are nearby climbs to ski resorts of similar difficulty that may be closer! The other side is also worthwhile although in my opinion it is not worth descending as far as Stein an der Enns

Zeer mooie klim, maar door motorijders kan het wat druk worden al valt dit mee. Laatste 5 km versmalt de weg en blijft het heel de tijd erg stijl. De opmerking van Rienk om langs de andere kant tot de eerste haardspeldbocht te dalen is zeker de moeite. In de buurt zijn er beklimmingen naar skioorden met gelijkaardige moeilijkheidsgraad die mogelijks dichter in de buurt zijn! De andere kant is ook de moeite al is het volgens mij het niet waard om tot in Stein an der Enns te dalen

One of the tougher climbs I have done. Very irregular. Roughly 3 parts. First part out of the valley, especially the first 2 km steep (9% gem). After about 4km you get a flat(er) part. The last 5km are really hellish. 10% average. The part with hairpins between the trees is doable, but once you have had the last hairpin, you see the top in front of you. The road hardly seems to go up, but your legs don't want to go up anymore and your bike computer continuously says 12-14%. Add to that a north wind and it is a struggle to reach the top. But then you have a phenomenal view. Especially if you descend and do the south side (if you don't, descend 1 hairpin anyway). In the curve, a beautiful panoramic view over the valley and the waterfall).

Een van de zwaardere beklimmingen die ik heb gedaan. Erg onregelmatig. Grofweg 3 delen. Eerste deel de vallei uit met name de eerste 2 km stijl (9% gem). Na een km of 4 krijg je een vlak(ker) stuk. De laatste 5km zijn echt hels. 10% gemiddeld. Het stuk met haarspelden tussen de bomen is nog te doen, maar eens je de laatste haarspeld hebt gehad zie je de top voor je liggen. De weg lijkt nauwelijks omhoog te lopen, maar je benen willen niet meer en je fietscomputer zegt continu 12-14%. Tel er een noordenwind bij op en het is harken tot de top. Vervolgens wel een fenomenaal uitzicht. Zeker als je m afdaalt en de zuidzijde ook doet (doe je die niet, Daal dan toch 1 haarspeld af. In de bocht een prachtig panoramisch beeld over de vallei en de waterval).
