This climb consists of 2 stages. The first part is a beautiful, quiet tarmac road of 16 kilometers to the village of Enzingerboden. You ride 13 numbered hairpin bends (Kehren).

Just before the village starts the second and toughest part of the climb. You have to pass the barrier and drive over a much less beautiful road through an unlit tunnel up the climb to the reservoir. The bends are also numbered, but the signs are almost illegible. These 7 kilometers are a lot harder and steeper. Once you're above the tree line the landscape becomes more and more beautiful until you finally reach the remarkably shaped dam.
