INTRO

Turn onto the climb at WTF Corner - for real - Google Map + Reviews -:  "This intersection marks the start of the "Back of Falls" climb, one of Victoria's toughest climbs for road cyclists. After relatively gentle approach along the Omeo Highway from the south, the gradient for the first few hundred metres is well in excess of 10% (steeper than just about everything in the Tour de France). This has caused more than a few otherwise mild-mannered cyclists, particularly those attempting the climb after 190 kilometres or so as part of the "3 Peaks" route, to exclaim something featuring those initial letters when this very, very steep section comes into view."  Robert Merkel. .
The average grade of this climb is 4.4% (6.1% if you eliminate descent from the gradient equation), although the first 5 kilometers after WTF corner averages 8.9% and the steepest kilometer averages 11% and is at the end of that segment.  43% of the climb is at 5-10% grade and 9% is at 10-15%.
