Definitely one of the climbs of the region. The slopes in the area don't get much harder than Mont Violette. You rarely climb above 10% for so long in this region. The metres seem to pass very slowly. And a glance to the left shows how quickly you gain altitude. Besides that, the good tarmac ... read more

Definitely one of the climbs of the region. The slopes in the area don't get much harder than Mont Violette. You rarely climb above 10% for so long in this region. The metres seem to pass very slowly. And a glance to the left shows how quickly you gain altitude. Besides that, the good tarmac and the little traffic make it a pleasant climb.

Still, as a fan of climbs with bends and hairpins, I doubted whether I would give the 5th star, this climb is mainly one of straightforwardness, except for an S-curve in the beginning of the climb. But the difficulty of the climb itself gives right to the 5 stars.

Absoluut één van de beklimmingen van de streek. Veel zwaarder dan de Mont Violette worden de hellingen in de weide omgeving niet. Zo lang boven de 10% gaat het in deze streek zelden. De meters lijken uiterst traag voorbij te gaan. En een blik naar links maakt duidelijk hoe snel je hoogtemeters wint. Daarnaast maken het goede asfalt en het weinige verkeer het aangenaam klimmen.

Toch twijfelde ik als liefhebber van hellingen die zich via bochten en haarspelden omhoog slingeren of ik ook de 5de ster zou geven, deze klim is er op een S-bocht in het begin van de klim na toch voornamelijk één van recht toe recht aan. Maar de lastigheid van de klim zelf geeft toch recht aan de 5 sterren.

An absolute must to climb if you are cycling in this region. Nice piece of almost a kilometer with more than 10% on a very good road surface with little traffic.

Beklimming die je absoluut moet doen als je in deze regio fietst. Leuk stuk van bijna een kilometer aan meer dan 10% op een zeer goed wegdek met weinig verkeer.
