By starting in Montroux, you add just a few extra altimeters before starting the real 'Les Waides'. Typical climb for this region, nice and quiet and great views over the farmland. Before the top, climb briskly and sprint off towards the big tree on the right at the road. Nice mikpunt👌... read more

Door te starten in Montroux voeg je net wat extra hoogtemeters toe voordat je aan de echte ‘Les Waides’ begint. Kenmerkende klim voor deze regio, lekker rustig en prachtig uitzicht over het boerenland. Voor de top even stevig doorklimmen en afsprinten richting de grote boom aan de rechterkant aan de weg. Mooi mikpunt👌🏻

For a large part really good road surface, seems fairly recently patched. Feels like 2 separate climbs. After the first part you really get to the top and you get a piece of descent. The 2nd part is pretty good, in the village you turn left (looks straight on the map), once you come between the houses you see the steep part, here it is also quite hard. As soon as the road bends to the left, the percentages level off again. If you are at the top, it is still to the main road to get to the highest point.

Voor een groot deel echt goed wegdek, lijkt redelijk recent opgelapt. Voelt echt als 2 losse klimmen. Na het eerste stukje kom je echt boven en krijg je een stuk afdaling. Het 2e stuk loopt eerst vrij goed, in het dorpje ga je linksaf(lijkt op de kaart rechtdoor), zodra je daar tussen de huizen vandaan komt zie je het steile stuk liggen, hier is het ook even flink aanpoten. Zodra de weg naar links buigt vlakken de percentages weer af. Als je boven bent is het nog even doorrijden tot de hoofdweg om op het hoogste punt te komen.

Similar to the "standard" climb to Les Waides because the last (and the toughest) three quarters of the climb is equal to the other one. Because you come from the direction of Mortroux you do make more altimeters but part of that route runs between houses.
The climb starts with a good percentage and where it flattens out you turn right and continue upwards. Between the houses a flat piece and then a steep descent with beautiful views of what is yet to come. Then a nice swing upwards, into the small road and then a big push to get to the trees at the top. In the second part and especially at the top really beautiful views.

Vergelijkbaar met de "standaard" klim naar Les Waides want de laatste (en de zwaarste) driekwart van de klim is gelijk aan de andere. Omdat je vanuit de richting van Mortroux komt maak je wel meer hoogtemeters maar een deel van dat traject loopt wel tussen huizen door.
De klim begint met een lekker percentage en waar deze afvlakt ga je rechtsaf weer verder omhoog. Tussen de huizen een vlak stuk en daarna een steile afdaling met prachtig uitzicht op wat nog komen gaat. Daarna een mooie slinger naar boven, het kleine weggetje in en dan even flink aanzetten om bij de bomen op de top te komen. In het tweede deel en vooral bovenaan werkelijk prachtig uitzicht.
