Absolute top favorite in the Ardennes, and as a bonus also good to stop in rides from southern Limburg! The climb is really beautiful, curves after curves and always with a fantastic view of the valley behind you.

What a nice runner of a climb..narrow street with no traffic..at the first hairpin turn it is a bit tough but after that it is back to climbing at a nice pace..also continues endlessly.

Wat een lekkere loper van een klim..smal straatje met geen verkeer..bij de eerste haarspeldbocht is effe pittig maar daarna is het weer heerlijk op tempo klimmen..blijft ook eindeloos doorlopen

Maybe it was because of the praise below but I found 'm somewhat disappointing. Not 'super special', but in my opinion there are some nicer climbs in the Ardennes.

Misschien kwam het door de lovende reacties hieronder maar ik vond 'm wat tegenvallen. Niet 'super speciaal', wel leuk maar er zijn naar mijn mening toch best wel wat mooiere beklimmingen in de Ardennen.

Beautiful climb. Pretty tough in the beginning and nice views.
The asphalt I found only moderate to bad.
Definitely a nice climb, but I liked the Niaster better.

Mooie klim. Best pittig in het begin en mooie uitzichten.
Het asfalt vond ik maar matig tot slecht.
Zeker een mooie klim , maar de Niaster vond ik dan toch mooier.

I suffered here unexpectedly hard, but I am also a relatively novice cyclist with a moderate condition and a heavy bike. I would definitely recommend this one because of the beautiful views I was able to enjoy, at least at times when I wasn't bent over my handlebars in distress. Especially in the hairpin bend in the beginning it is very steep!

Ik heb hier onverwacht hard afgezien, maar ik ben ook nog een relatief beginnend fietser met matige conditie en een zware fiets. Ik raad deze toch zeker aan door de mooie vergezichten waar ik kon van profiteren, op momenten waar ik niet van ellende over mijn stuur gebogen lag tenminste. Zeker in de haardspeldbocht in het begin is het heel steil!

Nice quiet climb, which starts under a gate at a busy road. Asphalt is moderate, this you want to descend. Beautiful surroundings and views.

Mooie rustige klim, die begint onder een poort aan een drukke weg. Asfalt is matig, dit wil je die afdalen. Prachtige omgeving en verzichten.

It's been a while since I did this one (2018), but what I do know is that it's an extremely quiet climb in terms of traffic, with a few houses at the start, but you soon leave those behind. At the top you have a wide view. Just include it in your route if you're going to do the Redoute for example!

Het is al weer even geleden dat ik deze deed (2018), maar wat ik wel weet is dat het een uiterst rustige klim is qua verkeer, met in het begin een paar huizen, maar die laat je al snel achter je. Bovenop heb je een weids uitzicht. Gewoon opnemen in je route als je bijvoorbeeld ook de Redoute gaan doen!

Magnificent (unknown) climb in this region. Everybody is looking at the Redoute, but don't see the other gems in the area. Especially the start of the climb, in the middle of the nature, makes it such a beautiful climb.

Prachtige (onbekende) klim in deze streek. Iedereen kijkt hier naar de beruchte Redoute, maar zien daardoor andere pareltjes in deze streek niet liggen. Vooral het begin van de klim, heerlijk in de natuur, maakt het zo een pracht van een klim.

One of the most beautiful climbs I have ever done.

Een van de mooiste beklimmingen die ik ooit heb gedaan.

Absolute top favorite in the Ardennes, and as a bonus also good to stop in rides from southern Limburg! The climb is really beautiful, curves after curves and always with a fantastic view of the valley behind you. There is hardly any traffic, but there are dozens of cows that sometimes look at you in amazement. The gradients don't get really steep anywhere but they're not really easy either, nevertheless the climb is really nice. 10/10

Absolute topfavoriet in de Ardennen, en als bonus ook nog eens prima in ritjes vanuit zuid Limburg te stoppen! De klim slingert echt prachtig omhoog, bocht na bocht en telkens met een fantastisch uitzicht op de vallei achter je. Er is praktisch geen verkeer, maar er zijn wel tientallen koeien die je soms verbaast aankijken. De stijgingspercentages worden nergens écht steil maar zijn ook nergens echt makkelijk, desondanks loopt de klim wel erg lekker. 10/10

Thanks for this recommendation! It's a great way to get back to Coo / Trois-Ponts after the Redoute.

Bedankt voor deze aanrader! Die is een prachtige manier om na de Redoute weer terug te keren naar Coo / Trois-Ponts.
