Delightful climb with a combination of beautiful scenery and really good downhill work. The climb starts at the fish ponds at Château de Graaf after which the road winds up along a farm. At the T-junction turn right where at the farm there is a very bad piece of road (for the rest it is mostly doable but watch out for descents). Here are beautiful views in all directions. When you enter the forest, the fun about the beautiful surroundings turns into climbing fun because the road after the side road immediately goes up hard. The road to Henri-Chapelle runs over the crest of a ridge and offers wide open views on both sides. A real pleasure.

Heerlijke klim met een combinatie van een mooie omgeving en echt lekker afzien. De klim begint bij de visvijvers bij Château de Graaf waarna de weg langs een boerderij leuk omhoog slingert. Op de T-splitsing rechtsaf waar bij de boerderij even een erg slecht stukje weg ligt (voor de rest is het overwegend goed te doen maar pas op met afdalen). Hier fraaie uitzichten alle kanten op. Als je het bos ingaat gaat de pret over de mooie omgeving over in klimpret want de weg knalt na de zijweg meteen hard omhoog. daarna volgt een iets vlakker (relatief gezien dan) stuk waarna nog een steil eindklimmetje volgt. De weg richting Henri-Chapelle loopt over de kam van een heuvelrug en levert aan beide kanten weer weidse uitzichten op. Echt genieten.

I agree with Go13 that this is the nicest variant of the climb. Shorter but steeper and a more exciting environment. Do. The last kilometer is identical to the Kinkenweg version, which remains terribly tough.

Ik ben het met Go13 eens dat dit de mooiste variant van de beklimming is. Korter maar steiler en een spannendere omgeving. Doen. De laatste kilometer is identiek aan de Kinkenweg-versie, dat blijft vreselijk zwaar.

The most beautiful side to attack the coast of the Hees wood: ponds, lakes, castle, classified farm, woods, views, ... 🌳🏛🏞
The climb starts at the ponds in front of the castle of Graaf (built in the 10th century), close to the centre of Montzen. It starts gradually along the Graaf Castle street before passing on the Kinkenweg street to the Hees Wood hill.
The climb is 1500m at 6% with a 600m wall at 10% (passing at 17%).
A must-do climb.
Superb climb!

Le plus beau côté pour attaquer la côte du bois de la Hees : étangs, lacs, château, ferme classée, bois, vues, ... 🌳🏛🏞
La montée démarre aux étangs devant le château de Graaf (construit au 10e siècle), proche du centre de Montzen. Elle commence progressivement par la rue du Château de Graaf avant de passer sur la rue Kinkenweg vers la côte du bois de la Hees.
La côte fait 1500m à 6% avec un mur de 600m à 10% (passage à 17%).
Une côte à faire absolument.
Superbe montée !
