Directions

Mt Baw Baw
A few stats for that all important gear choice.
The Baw Baw climb is 6km from the gatehouse to the summit with an elevation gain of 680m.
This means that the average gradient is 11.3% for the whole climb (680/6000 x 100).
I am not sure what the steepest sections are.
As a comparison, L'Alpe d'Huez, the most famous climb in the Tour de France is 13.8km at 7.9%.
The Col du Tourmalet is 18.3km at 7.7% and the Col de la Madelaine is 19.4km at 7.7%.
Last year's Tour of Spain had a climb up L'Angliru which was billed as the
toughest climb in the world (see www.team.malarenergi.se/probike/vuelta99/alix.html ).
It is 13km at an average of 9.6% with the last 6 km averaging 13%.
The steepest section is 23.5%.
Although a "hors category" climb normally has an elevation gain of at least
1000m and more likely, 1500m, the steepness of Baw Baw would mean that it
would be classed as a hors category in Europe.
As you can see, Baw Baw is not that far behind L'Angliru.
Toll ~ Neulynes = 2kms
Neulynes ~ Chair Gully = 2kms
Chair Gully ~ Finish = 3kms

Start Point: Toll Gate 80km from Warragul, stationary

End point: Mt Baw Baw Village
