If you know that this climb has an average of 9.8% and the first 300m seem to be flat, you know that you have to compensate further on. Nice environment with meadows in the middle and more forest at the top.... read more

Nice environment with meadows in the middle and more forest at the top.

kortstukje kasseitjes in het begin en als je weet dat deze kuitenbijter 9.8% gemiddeld is en je de eerst 300m vlak lijkt te lopen, dan weet je dat er moet gecompenseerd worden verderop.
Mooie omgeving met in het midden tussen de weides en aan de top meer bos.

A nice, narrow and steep climb in a beautiful setting between meadows.
I returned in the descent along the same road and had the misfortune to be behind tractor with cart.
With the result, as fast up as down.

Een mooie, smalle en steile klim in een mooie omgeving tussen de weiden.
Ik ben teruggekeerd in de afdaling langs dezelfde weg en had de tegenslag om achter tractor met kar te zitten.
Met als resultaat, even snel naar boven als naar beneden.

A Flemish Ardennes feeling. Was this climb on cobblestones it had become a classic! Very steep in some parts, and also a lot of loose stones along the road, the road surface was also torn here and there, definitely a must do climb.

Een Vlaams Ardennen gevoel in de Ardennen. Was deze klim op kasseien het was een klassieker geworden! Zeer steil op bepaalde delen, en ook veel losse steentjes langs de rijbaan, het wegdek was hier en daar ook gescheurd, wel zeker eens een klim die je moet gedaan hebben.

Totally agree with Jba13. Climbing between the meadows and the sheep. Nice alternative for the Rosier North (you end up on the road that the pros use during Liège-Bastogne-Liège as a descent from the Rosier, so you also get to the top via there)

helemaal eens met Jba13. Klimmen tussen de weien en de schapen. Leuk alternatief voor de Rosier Noord (je komt uit op de weg die de profs tijdens Luik-Bastenaken-Luik als afdaling van de Rosier doen, dus via daar kom je ook op de top)

This slope is a big (and for many an unknown) calf-biter in a surprisingly beautiful area with very little traffic.

When you leave Spa, you have the idea that the surroundings become more and more ugly. But as soon as you turn on this climb (after some bumping over the cobblestones) the green fields open up at your right hand. The higher you go, the more beautiful the view.

Deze helling is een flinke (en voor velen een onbekende) kuitenbijter in een verrassend mooie omgeving met bijzonder weinig verkeer.

Als je vanuit Spa de stad uitrijdt heb je het idee dat de omgeving steeds lelijker wordt. Maar zodra je deze beklimming opdraait (na wat hobbelen over de kinderkopjes) openen de groene velden zich aan je rechterhand. Hoe hoger je komt, hoe mooier het uitzicht.

This is a perfect way out of Spa as other climbs like le Rosier are much busier. To get here from the town centre you have to go through a backwater of industry, but that's not really a problem.

I think this one is early in the morning with fresh legs, but you have to push hard here. Delicious, it is that the climb is so short, otherwise I would give him four stars.

Dit is een perfecte uitweg vanuit Spa aangezien andere klimmetjes als le Rosier veel drukker zijn. Om hier vanuit het centrum te komen moet je wel door een achteraf stukje industrie, maar dat mag geen naam hebben.

Ik denk deze vroeg in de ochtend met frisse benen, maar je moet hier zeker even goed aanzetten. Heerlijk, Het is dat de klim zo kort is, anders zou ik hem vier sterren geven.
