The road is now closed due to roadworks. The road next to it you can do, also a steep climb

De weg is nu afgesloten vanwege wegwerkzaamheden. De weg ernaast kan je wel wel doen, ook een stijl beklimming

Terrible road surface.
If you do it just after the Wall, it is actually even worse.
I'm going to try it without the Wall, but it's definitely worth breaking your legs for. If you don't destroy your rims or wheels or tires first.

Verschrikkelijk wegdek.
Als je deze net na de Muur doet is het eigenlijk nog een grotere hel.
Ik ga hem eens zonder Muur proberen, maar tis zeker de moeite om je benen op stuk te rijden. Als je je velgen of wielen of banden niet eerst kapot rijdt

For specialists and amateurs of big percentages. It starts with heavy stuff and even if after the first 500m the percentages drop a bit we still stay for a good while above 10%. The road is really very degraded which tarnishes the pleasure a bit. Harder than the wall

Pour les spécialistes et amateurs de gros pourcentages. Cela commence par du lourd et meme si aprés les premiers 500m les pourcentages baissent un peu on reste encore un bon moment au dessus des 10%. La chaussée est vraiment tres dégradée ce qui vient ternir un peu le plaisir. Plus dur que le mur

Long and very steep with a terrible road surface and hopefully not (as with us) a car as an oncoming vehicle. But a must if you want to do the steeper slopes of our little Belgium...

Lang heel steil met een verschrikkelijk slecht wegdek en hopelijk niet (zoals bij ons) een auto als tegenligger. Maar wel een topper als je de steilere hellingen van ons Belgenlandje wil gedaan hebben...

You must visit it. It is located among trees and lots of shade. It does not have a good view or a perfect tarmac, but it is a must. You won't meet any cyclists and if you are unlucky, you will only find a car in front of you that will always give way to your effort. You can't zigzag uphill because the asphalt won't allow it. You have to save your strength, otherwise you will put your foot down in the middle of the climb. At the end you will find a good tarmac. You don't need to bring your MTB, with a road bike and a 28 in the back is enough....

Je moet het bezoeken. Het is gelegen tussen bomen en veel schaduw. Het heeft geen goed uitzicht of een perfect asfalt, maar het is een aanrader. U zult geen fietsers tegenkomen en als u pech hebt, zult u alleen een auto voor u vinden die altijd voor uw inspanning zal wijken. Je kunt niet zigzaggend omhoog omdat het asfalt dat niet toelaat. Je moet je krachten sparen, anders zet je midden in de klim je voet op de grond. Aan het eind zal je een goed asfalt vinden. Je hoeft je MTB niet mee te nemen, met een racefiets en een 28 achterin is genoeg...

The climb is indeed harder than its famous brother. The bad road surface does not help. The steep part seems to go on and on.

De klim is inderdaad zwaarder dan zijn bekende broertje. Het slechte wegdek helpt daarbij niet. Het steile stuk lijkt maar niet op te houden.

Harder than the Huy wall but more constant. The road is quite straight and the surface is not too hard. For me, this is one of the most complicated walls in the region. Even if the end is less steep, it feels like the climb never ends. Fortunately, it's quiet. An average cyclist will wear a size 36/28 to keep a certain (relative) comfort.

Plus dur que le mur de Huy mais plus constant. ça monte fort sans répit. La route est assez rectiligne et le revêtement ne rend pas trop. C'est pour moi un des murs de la région les plus compliqués à passer. Même si la fin est moins raide, on a l'impression que la montée ne finit pas. Heureusement, c'est calme. Un cyclosportif moyen adoptera du 36/28 pour garder un certain confort (très relatif).

The road surface is crap but what a beast this is, I really enjoyed this!
Grim surroundings, narrow road and hope you don't meet anyone.
You should definitely do this one if you are going to do the Mur de Huy :)

Het wegdek is bagger maar wat een beest is dit zeg, hier ging ik wel lekker op!
Grimmige omgeving, smalle weg en hopen dat je niemand tegen komt.
Deze moet je zeker een keer gedaan hebben als je de Mur de Huy gaat doen :)

The climb was very steep and made even more difficult because of the extremely poor road surface, which adds to the difficulty, especially as the road is very narrow and it is complicated when you pass a vehicle.

Montée très raide et rendue d'autant plus difficile en raison d'un revêtement extrêmement dégradé ce qui rajoute à la difficulté d'autant que la route est très étroite et que c'est compliqué quand on croise un véhicule.

Dodging pits and potholes on a very steep climb.

Very tough climb with bad road surface. Very quiet though. Because it's a bit harder than the Wall of Huy, it would be a shame not to do it...

Zeer zware klim met slecht wegdek. Wel erg rustig. Omdat hij nog iets zwaarder is dan de Muur van Huy, zou het zonde zijn als je deze niet doet...

What a beast of a climb this is! Where you have less steep parts on the Muur, this one seems to be one steep line going up that just doesn't seem to stop. Without a doubt one of the toughest climbs in Belgium!

Wat een beest van een klim is dit zeg! Waar je op de Muur minder steile stukjes hebt, lijkt dit wel één steile lijn naar boven die maar niet lijkt op te houden. Zonder twijfel één van de zwaarste beklimmingen van België!

You can also take the steep road left (Vieux Thier de Huy) this has extremely steep parts asphalt. However, because it immediately flattens out again, it is perhaps slightly less difficult than the Thier de Huy, but certainly comparable with the Wall of Huy.

Je kunt ook de steile weg links nemen (Vieux Thier de Huy) deze kent extreem steile stukjes asfalt. Echter doordat het hierna direct ook weer afvlakt, is deze misschien net iets minder zwaar dan de Thier de Huy; maar zeker vergelijkbaar met de Muur van Hoei.

A lot heavier than the wall. The best part is when you do not have a car in front of you on the narrow sections. Classification is important (after the first 100 meters you think you are there ... nothing is less true).

Een stuk zwaarder dan de muur. Het leukst is het als je geen auto als tegenligger hebt op de smalle stukken. Indelen is belangrijk (na de eerste 100 meter denk je dat je er bent ... niets is minder waar).

Heavy and very steep climb but well worth it

Zware en erg steile klim maar dat is het zeker waard
