Climb Summary

If you come to the state of Tirol, Austria for any reason (including, for example, climbing the mighty Rettenbachferner), be sure to consider the easier, but lovely Timmelsjoch climb beginning in the same location as Rettenbachferner.  This climb is much more difficult than its 4.7% average grade and Fiets Index would suggest due to a 525’ descent just after the toll booth at mile 10.4.

The climb is stark, above tree line and with a few wonderful giant hairpins over the last 3 miles.  Be sure to visit the Motorcycle Museum adjacent to the toll booth at mile 10.4.  Note - there is no toll for cyclists.
