Story by Steven Broers from Copenhagen, Denmark, submitted on 20/10/2015
This one is a beast.
2 years ago I gave this climb a first go. And I feel no shame admitting I was not able to bike it up. Though it is only 5kms long, it is so steep (all the time, you never get a break) that I had to walk parts of it. The weather didn''t help either. It was snowing (April) and the descent from the Obertauern climb had turned my legs into ice cubes.

So this summer I returned. And I had to face my nemesis again. The weather was awful once more. No snow this time, but rain. Leaving from Wagrain over the Obertauern pass down to St. Michael im Lungau and up the Katschberhöhe, down again and over the Obertaurnpass back to Wagrain again I spent almost 99% of the day with my head in the clouds. But this time I did the Katschberghöhe in one go, actually enjoying parts of it.

But this is a climb I would recommend everyone to challenge once.

During the same holiday I also cycled up the Grossglockner that defenitley has the better views. But for me, the satisfcation after reaching the top of the Katschberghöhe in one go was just as big as reaching the top of the Grossglockner…

although it''s ''only'' 5km, % up to 15-16% and nowhere lower than 10%, no time to recover at any time

very though at the end of a trip
