Worthy of its title as the toughest climb in the Pas-de-Calais region. Despite the busy, unpleasant approach with lots of traffic, you should definitely do it if you ride in the region. After the exit at the roundabout, the first few hundred meters are not too bad until you reach a slight left turn where the percentages go up. The percentages will not decrease for the next 400 meters so you have to pedal and work hard on the smallest speed. Also hope you don't run into any oncoming traffic on the narrow track because when you get to the ground you have to go to the top on foot.

Zijn titel als zwaarste klim van de regio Pas-de-Calais meer dan waard. Ondanks de drukke, onaangename aanloop met veel verkeer moet je hem zeker eens doen als je in de regio rijdt. Na de afslag aan het rond punt vallen de eerste honderden meters goed mee tot je aan een flauwe links bocht komt waar de percentages moordend omhoog gaan. Ze nemen de komende 400 meter niet meer af dus stampen en afzien op het kleinste blad is de boodschap. Ook hopen dat je geen tegenligger tegenkomt op het smalle baantje want bij voet aan grond is het te voet tot de top.

A bit busier approach to the foot of the climb. In the first meters you already see a glimpse of the wall in front of you, only after the turn it becomes clear that the gigantic gradient continues. Heavier than some walls in the Ardennes!

Wat drukkere aanloop naar de voet van de klim. In de eerste meters zie je al een glimp van de muur die voor je ligt, pas na de bocht wordt duidelijk dat het gigantische stijgingspercentage blijft aanhouden. Zwaarder dan enkele muren in de Ardennen!
