A steep descending of the normal climb from Gemmenich to Vaals. The first part of the climb follows the regular route. After the "red plane" (crossing with RAVeL) you turn right into a small road (further on moderate asphalt) that goes up along a few houses. There follows a slight curve which is flatter and then it goes up considerably ... And then you bump into a zigzag fence. Considering the amount of leaves, this gate is rarely used. The gate is rather narrow (and sits on a steep slope) but you can go right around it. You need to have some speed, otherwise the rear wheel will slip to the side. The last part to the main road is the steepest and loose stones can cause a slipping tire. Once you're on the main road it becomes almost flat and it's only a few meters to the top.
Nice steep climb but further I found it has little added value compared to the regular climb. The fence is just too difficult and the tarmac too bad.

Een steile afsteker van de normale klim vanuit Gemmenich naar Vaals. Het eerste deel van de klim volgt de reguliere route. Na het "rode vlak" (kruising met RAVeL) ga je rechtsaf een klein weggetje (met verderop matig asfalt) in dat langs een paar huizen omhoog loopt. Er volgt een lichte slinger die wat vlakker is en daarna gaat het flink stijgen... en fiets je tegen een zigzag-hekje aan. Gezien de hoeveelheid bladeren wordt deze zeer weinig gebruikt. Het hekje is tamelijk krap (en zit op een best steile helling) maar je kan er rechts omheen. Je moet dan wel wat vaart hebben want hier flink aanzetten zorgt anders voor een opzij slippend achterwiel. Het laatste stukje tot de grote weg is het steilst en losse steentjes kunnen voor een slippende band zorgen. Zodra je op de grote weg bent wordt het vrijwel vlak en is nog het maar een paar meter tot de top.
Lekker steil klimmetje maar verder vond ik het weinig toegevoegde waarde t.o.v. de reguliere klim hebben. Daarvoor is het hekje toch net te lastig en het asfalt te slecht.
