Kitzbuheler Horn

 Kitzbuheler Horn   

Unless you’re an avid follower of the Tour of Austria, the Kitzbüheler Horn is probably a climb that you’ve never heard of. At 9.7 kilometers, the Kitzbüheler is by no means among the longest climbs in the WorldTour calendar. However, given the fact it packs an average gradient of 12.9%, along with numerous sections along the way that peak at more than 20%, it clearly ranks as one of the most brutal climbs one could attempt. To put things into perspective, the Giro d’Italia’s infamous Mortirolo Pass is considered by many in the peloton, as the most demanding climb of any in the three Grand Tours. However, despite the Mortirolo being 2.7 kilometers longer than the Kitzbüheler, its average gradient of 10.5% is considerably less. Moreover, its steepest sections of 18% are not quite as severe either.
