Really shitty cobblestones and one of the few climbs in the Flemish Ardennes where I don't feel victorious at the end. The gutter is an option, but what was the point of riding up this cobblestone slope in the first place?... read more

Echt rotkasseien en één van de weinige beklimmingen in de Vlaamse Ardennen waarbij ik geen overwinningsgevoel heb op het einde. Het gootje is een optie, maar wat was dan in de eerste plaats het punt om langs deze kasseihelling omhoog te rijden?

It's not really a big deal, you're over it before you know it. I don't like it because the cobblestones are terrible.

Stelt eigenlijk niet zoveel voor je bent er voorbij voor je het weet. Vind het niet zo een leuke omdat de kasseien er ook verschrikkelijk bijliggen

I usually pass well this beautiful hill: it must be said that, as for the Paterberg, I always pass by the gutter... sometimes, unfortunately, it is so cluttered that one is obliged to go up on the cobblestones. Be careful when doing so, the jump from the gutter to the cobblestones is quite important, it may be necessary to raise the front wheel or to "jump" the bike.

Je passe en général bien cette belle côte : il faut dire que, comme pour le Paterberg, je passe toujours par la gouttière… parfois, malheureusement, elle est tellement encombrée qu'on est obligé de remonter sur les pavés. Attention ce faisant, le ressaut de la gouttière vers les pavés est assez important, il peut être nécessaire de cabrer sa roue avant ou de faire « sauter » son vélo.

If you've already done some hills out of the way, it does hurt.
Not too bad, though. For short, explosive power.
Did a nice job on the cobblestones, which weren't looking so good, although the gutter was inviting :)

Als je al wat hellingen uit de buurt hebt gedaan, doet hij wel pijn.
Maar valt op zich mee. Voor korte, explosieve kracht.
Heb mooi op de kasseien gereden, die er niet zo goed bij lagen, al was het gootje uitnodigend :)

This climb is great if you have a good day, then you can still pull through on top over the cobbles. On a bad day, this last part is always disappointing.

Deze klim is geweldig als je een goeie dag hebt, dan kun je hem bovenop nog doortrekken over de keien. Op een slechte dag valt dit laatste stuk altijd tegen.

Very nice climb through a forest with a very steep start.
Once out of the forest it flattens out a bit and you can continue.
Depending on which direction you come from it can start very abruptly after a descent, the foot is almost in a pit.

Heel mooie klim door een bos met een vreselijk steil begin.
Eenmaal uit het bos wordt het wat vlakker en kan je doortrekken.
Afhankelijk van welke richting je uitkomt kan hij heel abrupt beginnen na een afdaling, de voet ligt zowat in een put.
