Hi there,we were under the Glockner for the weekend and on the second day i planned clinb to Hochtor.There are two main parts of the climb i believe.First to Heiligenblut where you can breath and heal easily.Second part from Heiligenblut is more interesting, ofr torture at least;) Climb is endless, hairpins are countless and you feel every pedal spins above 2000m above see level.Snow could calm you dawn even during the summer so let´s go there!:)
