Nice and beautiful climb. Mortroux is quite a pretty village by the river. The climb starts quite steep, then flattens out and gets steeper further on. Too bad about the real descent before the final summit, but overall you are climbing for a long time for this region. Tough? No, not at all. Nice to... read more

Nice and beautiful climb. Mortroux is quite a pretty village by the river. The climb starts quite steep, then flattens out and gets steeper further on. Too bad about the real descent before the final summit, but overall you are climbing for a long time for this region. Tough? No, not at all. Nice to see? Definitely.

Leuke en mooie klim. Mortroux is best wel een fraai dorp zo aan het riviertje. De klim begint vrij steil, vlakt dan af en wordt verderop nog eventjes steil. Jammer van de echte afdaling voor de definitieve top, maar overall ben je wel lekker lang aan het klimmen voor deze regio. Zwaar? Nee. Leuk om mee te pakken? Zeker.

Nice climb though! Nice and long, nice road, super quiet. Too bad about the two flat bits in between.

Leuke klim hoor! Lekker lang, mooie weg, super rustig. Jammer van de twee vlakke stukjes tussendoor.

The profile has been updated, now the whole climb is on it.

From a hard start in Mortroux it gets more relaxed between the houses. This changes when you enter the Voie des Morts because then the percentage goes up a lot. The road then stays lighter but still rises considerably until the first "top". Then a very light descent (almost flat actually) after which a steep climb to the end follows.
Very nice climb and beautiful views at the top.

Het profiel is aangepast, nu staat de hele beklimming er op.

Van een pittig begin vanuit Mortroux wordt het tussen de huizen weer een stuk relaxter. Dat verandert als je de Voie des Morts ingaat want dan gaat het percentage flink omhoog. De weg blijft daarna lichter maar nog steeds behoorlijk stijgen tot de eerste "top". Hierna een zeer lichte afdaling (vrijwel vlak eigenlijk) waarna nog een pittig hellinkje tot het eind volgt.
Heel mooie klim en met fraaie uitzichten bovenin.

One of the most beautiful climbs in the area. The profile as indicated here is too short. The climb is much longer. On the left nice views to the north. A climb that goes up in stages. Mortroux is a nice example of a cosy Walloon hamlet.

Een van de mooiste klimmen in de omgeving. Het profiel zoals hier aangegeven is te kort. De klim loopt nog veel langer door. Op links mooie uitzichten naar het noorden. Een klim die in etappes omhoog gaat. Mortroux is een mooi voorbeeld van een knus Waals gehucht.

Nice climb, but I prefer Bois de Mauhin which starts a bit further towards Val-Dieu.

Mooie klim, maar ik verkies Bois de Mauhin die iets verder richting Val-Dieu start.

Even if the name of the second part of this climb reminds you of an old graveyard (Voie des Morts), you don't have to worry about getting broken up here. Easy going climb with in the beginning and between the trees two moments where the average is around 9%, for the rest enough meters to enjoy the view on the beautiful valley left.

I think the profile gives a bit of a wrong impression: The climb starts until the church with percentages of around 8 or 9 percent for the first 200 meters. Moreover, the actual summit is still 500 meters away compared to how it is marked in the map.

Ook al herinnert de naam van het tweede wegdeel van deze klim aan een oude begraafplaats (Voie des Morts), hoef je niet bang te zijn om hier kapot op te lopen. Gemoedelijke klim met in het begin en tussen de bomen twee momenten waar het gemiddelde rond de 9% ligt, voor de rest genoeg meters om van het uitzicht op het mooie dal links te genieten.

Het profiel geeft wel denk ik een beetje een verkeerd beeld: De klim begint tot de kerk met percentages van rond de 8 of 9 procent voor de eerste 200 meter. Bovendien ligt de eigenlijke top nog 500 meter verderop vergeleken met hoe het in 't kaartje is aangegeven.
