If I had to establish a ranking of my favourite climbs in the Ardennes, this one would occupy one of the first places. Long, quite steep, beautiful landscape, not too much traffic (compared to the Roche-en-Ardenne hill which is parallel to it), I could almost believe I was back in my native mountains when I climb this hill. A real treat!

Si je devais établir un classement de mes montées préférées en Ardenne, celle-ci occuperait une des premières places. Longue, assez pentue, beau paysage, pas trop de trafic (comparé à la côte de Roche-en-Ardenne qui lui est parallèle), je pourrais presque me croire revenu dans mes montagnes natales quand je grimpe cette côte. Un régal !

Even runner with beautiful views! Road surface could be better, but you will not notice that because of the views

Gelijkmatige loper met mooie vergezichten! Wegdek kan beter, maar daar zal je door de uitzichten weinig van merken

Nice long runner. ideal as a warming up for tour around la roche. On Sunday not too busy.

Lekker lange loper. ideaal als opwarming voor tourtje rond la roche. Op zondag ook niet te druk.

Much better alternative for the parallel Cote de Roche en Ardenne. Nice climb with small curves and even ascents. Starting in forest and ending in wide meadows which remind of Alpine landscapes.

Veel beter alternatief voor parallelle Cote de Roche en Ardenne. Klimt leuk met kleine bochtjes en gelijkmatige stijgingspercentages. Beginnend in bos en eindigend in brede weides die wat aan Alpenlandschappen doen denken

This is one of those little climbs that is not well known but really worth doing, very quiet, wonderful views and never very steep!
If I lived in the neighbourhood, I would find it an ideal training climb, because it's about 3km above 5-6% but never steeper than 8% (and then only very short parts).
The only drawback is the bad tarmac at the beginning of the climb, so it's better to go up than down!

Dit is zo'n klimmetje dat helemaal niet bekend is maar echt wel de moeite waard is om te doen, heel rustig, zalige vergezichten en nooit heel steil!
Als ik in de buurt zou wonen zou ik het een ideale trainingsklim vinden, want hij is toch een goeie 3km boven de 5-6% maar ook nooit steiler dan 8% (en dan maar hele korte stukjes).
Het enige minpuntje is de slechte asfalt in het begin van de klim daarom ook beter om erop te gaan dan eraf!

This is one of the quieter climbs out of la Roche, both in terms of traffic and severity. Concrete road surface is not ideal, but uphill it's no problem. In the beginning in the forest, then the landscape opens up with meadows and views.

Dit is één van de rustigere beklimmingen vanuit la Roche, zowel qua verkeer als qua zwaarte. Betonnen wegdek is niet ideaal, maar heuvelop geen probleem. In het begin in het bos, daarna opent het landschap met weiden en vergezichten.
