INTRO

We have ridden the first portion of this climb as part of the #19 World Climb, Grosser Oscheniksee. Instead of turning right onto the private road up to the Oscheniksee Reservoir at mile 7 / kilometer 11.3, we continue up the main road, past the Power Station at mile 8 / kilometer 12.9, past Molitaler Gletscherbahnen ski station at mile 8.8 (km 14) to the end of the road and end of the Molltaler Gletscherexpress gondola line that begins at the base of the ski resort.

CLIMB SUMMARY

Tram to the top of the climb - the cowards way out!

This brutal ascent is within the Grobkirchheim, Austria Top World Climb Area

Photo contributions by Erwan Treguier, Brittany, France.

Climb ends near the top left of the map just below the Hochwurtenspeicher Reservoir.

A section of this climb overlaps the first part of the #19 World Climb, Grosser Oscheniksee.  Instead of turning right onto the private road up to the Oscheniksee Reservoir at mile 4.6 / kilometer 7.4, we continue up the main road, past the Power Station, past Molitaler Gletscherbahnen ski station at mile 8.8 (km 14) to the end of the road at the top of the Molltaler Gletscherexpress gondola line that begins at the base of the ski resort.  

We are advised there is a roadway sign that states at the beginning of the climb that advises the following hours for cyclists:

Cyclists are permitted to use the road from 1 May until 30 September, from 09.00 - 20.00 hrs.

Cyclists are permitted to use the road from 1 October until 30 October from 09.00 - 16.00 hrs.

 

 

We have never heard of anyone being stopped on this climb . . .

. . . but, fair warning, nonetheless.

This is a hydroelectric area - which usually means STEEP!

Some very nice kehres (hairpins) along the climb.

Steepest segments.
