How to get there This is the first pass on the Grossglocknerstrasse coming from the north. There is only a path going down the valley on the south of this pass (which goes back north, but in another valley). From the north you start in the area of Zell am See at Bruck and Krössenbach (755m). First after Fusch (811m) the real climb begins. The paved road continues up around Törlkopf and rises to 2428m at the end of the climb (Fuscher Törl 2) before it descends to a café at Fuscher Lacke (2262m) where it again rises to the Hochtortunnel (2504m) via the Mittertörl (tunnel) (2327m). See the Hochtor pass description for full details.
Other comments The part up to Fuscher-Törl from Fusch is the hardest climb on the Grossglocknerstrasse. It could be made even harder by going up the cobbledstoned cul-de-sac road (1.8 km) to Edelweißspitze (2572m) which takes off eastwards at the Fuscher-Törl.
