Profile Eisentalhöhe-northwest

The ascent from Kremsbrücke to the Eisentalhöhe can be divided into two parts, namely the first section along the Kremsbach to Innerkrems and a steeper part afterwards. The first part has a considerable length (9.5 kilometers) and overcomes 517 elevation meters. Hence, the average gradient measures 5.4%. I found the first kilometers of this climb, through a narrow valley and through Vorderkrems with its magnificent, flower-rich farms, surprisingly beautiful. After Innerkrems the tour continues on the Nockalmstraße, a tourist attraction. In my opinion it's a pretty nice road but I've seen better ones. The road is not really calm and loved by motorcyclists. The surrounding area is full of nature but not spectacular. Also, the road is wide and the slope of the climb from the northwest to the Eisentalhöhe is fairly constant (around 8%), which makes cycling a bit boring. Views are limited to the last 3-4 kilometers.
