First part of the climb between houses and forest with sometimes a view in the direction of Pont-de-Sçay is steeper, then the percentages become easier and at the village of Fraiture it gets steeper again. After the village the views over the Amblève valley are the best, and the climbing is over. The name gives associations with a fat, heavy climb, but that is not so bad. Traffic is not too bad (good alternative for the N633 through the valley), and the asphalt is good for climbing. Recently cycled during a trip along the Amblève: https://nl.wikiloc.com/routes-fietsen/pont-de-scay-trois-ponts-and-back-along-the-ambleve-100-km-85314681

Eerste deel van de klim tussen huizen en bos met af en toe een doorkijkje richting Pont-de-Sçay is steiler, dan worden de percentages makkelijker en bij het dorpje Fraiture wordt het weer steiler. Na het dorpje zijn de uitzichten het mooist over de vallei van de Amblève, en is het klimmen ook voorbij. De naam geeft associaties met een vette, zwaar op de maag liggende klim, maar dat valt zeker mee. Verkeer valt zeker mee (goed alternatief voor de N633 door het dal), en asfalt prima om te klimmen. Recent nog gefietst tijdens een tocht langs de Amblève: https://nl.wikiloc.com/routes-fietsen/pont-de-scay-trois-ponts-and-back-along-the-ambleve-100-km-85314681

Côte de Fraiture. Sounds nice, but is much less so. You soon get the feeling that you just ate a large one with extra mayonnaise. You cross the railway and take a sharp turn so that you pass a beautiful vertical (gneiss?) wall. And that's where the trouble starts. Once you have passed a wide right hand bend, you might think that the hardest part is behind you, but that is not the case. There is another steep part that keeps on going until you have more or less left the village. And then there is another spur which is longer than the profile suggests. The climb has nice tarmac and a nice view on top of the ridge.

Côte de Fraiture. Klinkt leuk, is het veel minder. Je krijgt al snel het gevoel dat je net een grote met extra mayonaise ophebt. Je steekt de spoorweg over en neemt een scherpe bocht zodat je langs een mooie verticale (gneis?)wand rijdt. En daar begint de miserie. Eenmaal je voorbij een brede rechtse bocht bent, denk je misschien dat je het lastigste achter de rug hebt, maar dat valt lelijk tegen. Er komt nog een steil stuk dat blijft doorlopen tot je het dorpje min of meer uit bent. En dan volgt er nog een uitloper die langer is dan wat het profiel doet vermoeden. De klim heeft wel mooi asfalt en een leuk uitzicht boven op de kam.
