Very difficult climb. The cobblestones through the forest make you forget you are riding through the forest. Or does the forest now make you forget how steep those cobblestones are? I do not know anymore. Staying on the saddle and pedaling. After the cobblestones there is a small spur. On a side slo... read more

Superb and tough climb with a very high gradient up to 20% over bad cobblestones in the beautiful Pays des Collines, the Walloon side of the Flemish Ardennes. You end up at Beau Site, where you can do a lot of other nice and steep climbs, like the Rue d'Arabie or the Avenue des Hauts. This is a beautiful region where it constantly goes up and down and also quieter than the Flemish Ardennes itself, a true cycling paradise. Who loves cobblestones and cobbled climbs should definitely have done.

Schitterende en zware klim met een heel hoge steiltegraad tot 20% over slechtbollende kasseien in het prachtige Pays des Collines, de Waalse zijde van de Vlaamse Ardennen. Je komt uit op Beau Site, waar je nog heel wat andere leuke en steile klimmetjes kunt doen, zoals de Rue d'Arabie of de Avenue des Hauts. Dit is een prachtige streek waar het constant op en af gaat en tevens rustiger is dan in de Vlaamse Ardennen zelf, een waar fietsparadijs. Wie van kasseien en kasseiklimmen houdt moet deze zeker gedaan hebben.

Really hard especially if you weigh 125 kg like me, I did not exceed 6 km/h on the cobblestones, it is necessary to be equipped with the good gearing
Very wide road so no worries for the traffic

Vraiment dur surtout si comme moi vous pesez 125 kg, je n'ai pas dépassé les 6 km/h sur les pavés, il faut être équipé du bon braquet
Route très large donc pas de soucis pour la circulation

The comparison that some people make with the koppenberg, I think is a bit exaggerated, but this is definitely a tough climb. The cobblestones are terrible and there is no gutter. Sometimes you can ride on the side through the dust, between the cobblestones and the grass, but it's still hard work. The descent along the Avenue des Hauts is probably the fastest descent in the Flemish Ardennes and Pays des Collines.

De vergelijking die sommigen maken met de koppenberg, vind ik wat overdreven, maar dit is zeker een lastige klim. De kasseien zijn verschrikkelijk en er is geen gootje. Soms kun je op de zijkant wat door het stof rijden, tussen de kasseien en het gras, maar het blijft hard werken. De afdaling langs de Avenue des Hauts is wellicht de snelste afdaling in de Vlaamse Ardennen en Pays des Collines.

tricky climb, bolt for no meter, seems to me harder than the wall of geraardsbergen or koppenberg, probably because cobblestones are so bad; great view at the top

lastige klim, bolt voor geen meter, lijkt mij lastiger dan de muur van geraardsbergen of de koppenberg, waarschijnlijk omdat kasseien zo slecht liggen; boven schitterend uitzicht

Also called "Beau-Site-sud-ouest" in the Cotacol encyclopedia, or simply "Les Hauts" (de Saint-Sauveur). In my opinion, it's worth the Koppenberg, and beats the Grammont Wall in difficulty. The cobblestones on the steep section are really hard to deal with and the concrete section that follows doesn't really allow you to recover. I also recommend the two alternative climbs, both paved, which are Avenue des Hauts, steep and clear, and Rue d'Arabie, less steep but in the woods. Going down Mont-Saint-Laurent via Avenue des Hauts is particularly pleasant, and very fast, as the road is steep, straight and clear. But you have to be careful when you get to the bottom, at the T-junction.

Aussi appelée « Beau-Site-sud-ouest » dans l'encyclopédie Cotacol, ou tout simplement « Les Hauts » (de Saint-Sauveur). À mon avis, elle vaut le Koppenberg et dépasse le mur de Grammont en difficulté. Les pavés de la portion en pente raide sont vraiment difficiles à gérer et la portion bétonnée qui suit ne permet pas vraiment de récupérer. Je recommande également les deux alternatives de montée, toutes deux asphaltées, que sont l'avenue des Hauts, raide et dégagée, et la rue d'Arabie, moins pentue mais en forêt. Descendre le Mont-Saint-Laurent par l'avenue des Hauts est particulièrement agréable, et très rapide, la route étant pentue, en ligne droite et dégagée. Mais il faut faire attention en arrivant en bas, au croisement en T.

Are you not progressing because of the cobblestones being so bad or because it's so damn steep? For me an absolute monument in the neighbourhood. A wide road with a view on the whole pays des collines and then a finish in the forest. It's a bit of a death wish, this little climb.

Ga je nu niet vooruit door de kasseien die zo slecht liggen of doordat het zo verdomd steil is? Voor mijn part een absoluut monument in de buurt. Een brede weg met uitzicht over het volledige pays des collines om dan te finishen in het bos. Even doodgaan toch, dit klimmetje.

Sharp climb with high percentages on treacherous cobblestones in the second part. Beautiful region to ride around afterwards.

Pittige klim met hoge percentages op verraderlijke kasseien in het tweede stuk. Wel prachtige streek om nadien rond te rijden.

Indeed a very difficult climb. The cobblestones are not in a good condition and there are really steep parts. For 300m you don't have to think and just stomp. The spur is a lot easier, you can recover a bit here. All in all a nice climb!

Inderdaad een zeer lastige klim. De kasseien liggen er niet goed bij en er zitten echt steile stukken in. 300m niet nadenken en enkel stampen. Uitloper is een stuk makkelijker, hierop kan je wel wat recupereren. Al bij al een mooie klim!

Very difficult climb. The cobblestones through the forest make you forget you are riding through the forest. Or does the forest now make you forget how steep those cobblestones are? I do not know anymore. Staying on the saddle and pedaling. After the cobblestones there is a small spur. On a side slope of the summit lies a very nice little hotel, Domaine Vertes Feuilles, owned by Dutch people.

Hle lastige klim. De Kasseien door het bos laten je vergeten dat je door het bos rijdt. Of laat het bos je nu vergeten hoe steil die kasseien liggen? Ik weet het niet meer. Op het zadel blijven zitten en stoempen. Na de kasseien nog een uitlopertje. Op een zijflank van de top ligt een heel leuk hotelletje Domaine Vertes Feuilles van Nederlandstalige eigenaars.
