Should better be called standard Mur de Maboge: after crossing the Ourthe you immediately look at a wall where it is raking the first 800 meters. Climb then flattens but can still be extra difficult if there is wind.... read more

A tough climb especially in the first 700m at 13-14%. Then a long spur with a headwind at the top. Nice climb along the way

Pittige klim vooral door de eerste 700m tegen 13-14%. Daarna lange uitloper met boven pal in de wind. Mooie klim onderweg

Rightly recommended on this website. One of the best climbs in the route around La Roche en Ardenne.

Terecht aangeraden op deze website. Een van de tofste beklimmingen in de route rond La Roche en Ardenne.

Zou beter standaard Mur de Maboge worden genoemd: na oversteken van de Ourthe kijk je direct tegen een muur aan waarbij het harken is de eerste 800 meter. Klim vlakt daarna af maar kan nog extra lastig worden indien er wind staat.

Once you cross the bridge you see how late it is. It is steep for about a km. From then on it is easy to do. After a short descent it goes up again. Once out of the forest you might have bad luck with the wind in the open fields.

Eens je over de brug rijdt zie je al hoe laat het is. Loopt meteen steil op voor ongeveer een km. Vanaf dan is ie goed te doen. Na een stukje afdaling loopt het weer op. Eens uit het bos kan je pech hebben met de wind in de open velden.

What a thing this is! Heard about it via via and included it in my ride. With lesser legs like I had that day, the chance that a foot on the ground cannot be avoided is pretty big. After the short descent, it's a nice uphill road to Hubermont with a nice view.

Wat een ding is dit! Via via er over gehoord en in mijn rit opgenomen. Met mindere benen zoals ik die dag had is de kans vrij groot dat een voetje aan de grond niet te voorkomen is. Na het kleine stukje afdalen is het een heerlijk oplopende weg naar Hubermont met een mooi uitzicht.

Nice climb! At the beginning, push your front wheel on the tarmac and keep pedalling, then a short descent and the road starts going up again. After this you cycle out of the forest and even get a beautiful view as desert!

Mooie klim!! Aan het begin je voorwiel op het asfalt drukken en blijven trappen, daarna een korte afdaling en begint de weg weer op te lopen. Hierna fiets je het bos uit en krijg je zelfs nog een prachtig uitzicht als toetje!

Delicious climb, not to be underestimated. A typical calf biter where if you start too fast you will break down completely.

Heerlijke niet te onderschatten klim. Een typische kuitenbijter waarbij als je te snel van start gaat helemaal stuk zal gaan.

Nice killer that we had with a good 100km in the legs. First part is survival. Chin on the handlebars and just keep pedaling. The front wheel comes loose with every pedal stroke, but above all keep on cycling! After a few hundred meters you can return to "normal" cycling and catch your breath.

Lekkere killer die wij hadden met al een dikke 100km in de benen. Eerste stuk is overleven. Kin op het stuur en gewoon blijven trappen. Voorwiel komt los bij iedere pedaalslag maar vooral blijven fietsen! Na een paar honderd meter kun je weer overgaan tot "gewoon" fietsen en op adem komen.

Last Saturday in the Criq I was allowed to conquer this pimple. A real killer, I had to stand for a large part. Compaq 34-28 as resistance

afgelopen zaterdag in de Criq deze puist mogen bedwingen. Een echte killer, ik heb een groot gedeelte moeten staan. Compaq 34-28 als verzet

Very nice climb, from the start directly back to lightest gear. The mountain gear is a must :)

Erg leuke klim, vanaf de start direct terug naar lichtste verzet. Het bergverzetje is wel een aanrader :)

"The Pied Monti is one of those climbs you only cycle if you've read about it"... or if you're taking part in the Vélomédiane-Claude Criquielion.

"De Pied Monti is zo'n klim die je alleen fietst als je erover hebt gelezen"… of als je aan de Vélomédiane-Claude Criquielion deelneemt.

Also called Mur de Maboge or Mur du Vélomediane.
Very difficult climb, a bit like the Koppenberg of the Ardennes.

ook Mur de Maboge of Mur du Vélomediane genoemd.
Zeer lastige klim, zo'n beetje de Koppenberg van de Ardennen.
