Along the canal with the wind behind us and then cross the busier road on the right and find this one just next to it. The first 200m are a bit of a shock after a flat canal. I didn't notice any gravel, like MrTembo said, but because of where I came from, the busy road crossing and the angle you have to make, you can't do anything else but stop and start anyway. That made those first 200m perhaps more difficult than they are.
After that, the climb stretches very long between fields.

Langs het kanaal met de wind mee om dan rechts drukkere baan over te steken en dan deze net ernaast te vinden. De eerste 200m zijn even schrikken na vlak kanaal. Van grind zoals MrTembo spreekt heb ik niks gemerkt, maar door vanwaar ik kwam, de drukkere baan die kruist en de hoek die je moet maken kan je sowieso niet anders als (bijna) stoppen en vertrekken. Dat maakte die eerste 200m misschien lastiger dan ze zijn.
Daarna strekt de klim zich zeer lang uit tussen de velden.

The most beautiful climb in the valley near Ittre. You find the start by turning to the canal at the bridge. You descend a little bit and turn right where you see the climb coming up. The first part is by far the hardest. Then you ride along beautiful fields. When you pass houses again, it starts to climb hard again.

Alternative: Almost the steepest road in the area comes at the same point: Rue de l'Ascension, starting higher up towards Ittre. Here you have to stand up to avoid falling backwards. Definitely a must to stand completely still.

Attention at the start! There can be gravel in the inner curve after the descent. Therefore I don't recommend to take this descent to start the climb with some speed.

De mooiste klim uit het dal bij Ittre. De start vindt je door naar het kanaal af te slaan bij de brug. Een klein stukje dalen en meteen rechtsaf waar je de klim voor je ziet opdoemen. Het eerste stuk is veruit het zwaarste. Hierna rijdt je langs prachtige velden. Wanneer je terug langs huizen rijdt, begint het toch weer stevig te klimmen.

Alternatief: Zowat de steilste weg in de wijde omgeving komt op hetzelfde punt: de Rue de l'Ascension, vertrekkende hogerop richting Ittre. Hier is het rechtstaan om niet achterover te vallen. Zeker een aanrader om eens volledig stil te staan.

Opgepast bij de start! In de binnenbocht na het afdalinkje kan er grind liggen. Vol deze afdaling nemen om al met enige snelheid de beklimming te starten raad ik daarom af.
