Because it's there... the climb with the most altimeters in Belgium and which also leads to the highest point in Belgium. The first 5 kilometres of the climb are on lovely little asphalted forest roads that are (almost) forbidden for car traffic. You will also encounter a few barriers but these can be bypassed (can be a bit slippery at times) when closed. After these sometimes quite tough kilometres you get to the wide but mostly quiet main road after which there is a long stretch (fortunately the scenery is beautiful and it also changes as you get higher) to the first summit at Baraque Michel. Then a slight descent to the left turn after which there is a slight climb to the finish.
The main road is a bit of a struggle but the realisation of the many altimeters you make does make a difference. And the first beautiful part of the climb, the beautiful scenery and the top of Belgium make up for everything.

Because it's there... de klim met de meeste hoogtemeters van België en die ook nog naar het hoogste punt van België voert. De eerste 5 kilometer van de klim voeren over heerlijke kleine geasfalteerde bosweggetjes die (vrijwel) verboden zijn voor autoverkeer. Je komt dan ook enkele slagbomen tegen maar daar is omheen te rijden (kan soms wel wat glibberig zijn) als deze dicht zijn. Na deze soms best pittige kilometers kom je uit op de brede maar veelal rustige hoofdweg waarna nog een lang stuk (gelukkig is de omgeving fraai en deze verandert ook als je hoger komt) volgt tot de eerste top bij Baraque Michel. Daarna een lichte afdaling tot de afslag naar links waarna een licht klim tot het eindpunt volgt.
De hoofdweg is even doorbijten maar het besef van de vele hoogtemeters die je maakt scheelt wel. En het eerste mooie deel van de klim, de fraaie omgeving en de top van België maken alles goed.
