*** Information page on the Grossglockner here ***
On our way to the OEMC 2009 in Baden, I planned on climbing the Großglockner-Hochalpenstraße a.k.a. Grossglockner High Alpine Road.
This is one of the more famous alpine high roads (in Austria) and ranked a little higher than the Stelvio on ClimbByBike.com.
The profiles on CBB are a bit confusing, as there are two extra or separate ‘forks’ you can take: the Edelweissspitze and the Kaiser Franz-Josef-höhe, but the latter is only shown from Pockhorn (Heiligenblut).
I was planning on the climb from Fusch, get up to the Fuscher Törl first, then take the extra loop to the Edelweissspitze and after that get up to the Franz Josephs-höhe…
Click here for the profile of the climb from Fusch to the Edelweissspitze – the start of the climb to that highest point is actually just under (and a left-turn 250 meters before) the Fuscher Törl.
