After the first wall I almost broke down due to a broken gear, the second one took some teeth under a burning sun and the third one is even harder. Got to the top swinging, sat there panting for another 2 km until I got some idea of where I was cycling. Beautiful but very tough climb in very beautiful surroundings.

Na het 1e muurtje al bijna kapot door kapot versnellingsapparaat, het 2e was op de tanden bijten onder brandende zon en het 3e is dan nog zwaarder. Al zwalpend boven geraakt, nog 2 km zitten nahijgen tot ik weer enigszins doorhad waar ik aan het fietsen was. Mooie maar zeer pittige klim in zeer mooie omgeving.

One of the toughest climbs in Belgium. The road on the first two "walls" is pretty bad, and when I rode It half of it was completely collapsed due to the recent flood. Its fairly unknown and it really should have more attention.

Absolute killer of the region. Only a few get up here easily. After the second 'wall' you already think it is heavy, but the gravity of the third piece is not to be underestimated. Climbing gears recommended. Sign says heaviest section of 23.9% and that would not surprise me. Really much tougher than the more famous Wall of Huy.

Absolute killer van de regio. Slechts weinigen geraken hier vlot boven. Na de tweede 'muur' denk je al dat hij zwaar is, maar de zwaartegraad van het derde stuk is niet te onderschatten. Klimversnellingen aangeraden. Bord vermeld zwaarste stuk van 23.9% en dat zou me niet verbazen. Echt veel zwaarder dan de bekendere Muur van Hoei.

In the series "Are my beta-blockers always well dosed?" or "Today, I'm tearing my calves!", the triple wall of Monty is the local brevet of Montagnard or rather, cyclotagnard. A first warm-up will make you understand that you're not laughing anymore, then the intermediate part will allow you to give up with honors and the third part will try to kill you by asphyxia or acidosis or even septicemia because of the schrapnels of the chain breaks which will reach your calves.

Dans la série « Mes béta-bloquants sont-ils toujours bien dosés ? » ou « Aujourd’hui, je me déchire les mollets ! », le triple mur du Monty est le brevet local de Montagnard ou plutôt, de cyclotagnard. Une première mise en jambe vous fera comprendre qu’on ne rit plus, ensuite, la partie intermédiaire vous permettra d’abandonner avec les Honneurs et la troisième partie tentera de vous tuer par asphyxie ou acidose voire de septicémie à cause des schrapnels des bris de la chaîne qui vous atteindront aux mollets.

It's an unbelievable pain in the ass, especially since the road surface is terrible in the first phase. Especially with the Wall of Huy and the Gayolle already in the legs it is a struggle. The last part is really straight up. At the bottom, there is a sign that says 23.9% is the maximum... I don't know if it's true, but at least the end feels steep!

Een ongelooflijk onding, vooral omdat in de eerste fase het wegdek er ook beroerd bij ligt. Zeker met de Muur van Hoei en de Gayolle al in de benen is het ploeteren. Het laatste stuk loopt echt recht omhoog. Beneden staat een bord met 23,9% als maximum... Of het waar is weet ik niet, maar het einde voelt in ieder geval wel zo steil!

You've done this climb a few times in the Tour de Namur and it's a real killer, you start +-13% up and in the distance you see it get even steeper once you get here, you think you can almost see the top now, but then the real work starts with another 16%+ piece, really hell if you do this one at the end of a tour, I've seen several people crash here!

Deze klim paar keer al gedaan in Tour de Namur en deze klim is echt een kuitenbijter, je begint aan +-13% omhoog en in de verte zie je het nog stijler gaan eens je hier bent geraakt dan denk je ik zie de top nu wel haast, maar dan komt het echte werk eraan met nog een stuk 16%+ echt een hel als je deze op het einde van een toertocht doet, heb hier al verschillende mensen voet aan de grond zien zetten!

Ridden last week as part of the beautiful Tour de Namur. As far as I'm concerned it belongs to the top 3 of the most difficult climbs in Belgium. The succession of three (triple) walls is absolutely exhausting, whatever the speed. Recuperating on one of the intermediate sections is hardly possible. Moreover, if you do not know that the most difficult part (up to almost 20%) comes at the very end, you are literally parked. So, dosing is the message, although this is far from obvious. A monster of a climb, hardly equalled in Belgium!

Vorige week opgereden als onderdeel van de mooie Tour de Namur. Wat mij betreft behoort deze tot de top-3 van moeilijkste beklimmingen van België. De opeenvolging van drie (triple) muren is ronduit slopend, aan welke snelheid je deze ook oprijdt. Recupereren op één tussenstukjes lukt niet of nauwelijks. Bovendien als je niet weet dat het meest lastige gedeelte (tot bijna 20%) helemaal op het eind komt, sta je letterlijk geparkeerd. Doseren is dus dé boodschap, hoewel dit verre van evident is. Monster(tje) van een klim(metje), nauwelijks geëvenaard in ons Belgenland!

a killer - definitely do it!
And combine it with the citadel of Namur, then you already have 2 top climbs of Belgium in 1 ride!

een kanjer - zeker doen!
En combineren met de citadel van Namen, dan heb je alvast 2 toppers van beklimmingen van België in 1 rit!

Gone 3 times on death today! Refusing to set foot on the ground! Last part is really slalom to not have to stop.... Similar in difficulty to Stockeu, I think.

Vandaag 3 keer op dood gegaan! Weigeren voet aan grond te zetten! Laatste stuk echt slalom om niet te moeten stoppen.. Qua moeilijkheidsgraad gelijkaardig als stockeu vind ik..

Ridden in the Tour du Namur. It was very tough and (besides the mountain of heads) the only one where I ever had to set foot on the ground. My form that day was also not ideal but this climb is not to be underestimated and hits your body like a three-stage rocket. The 300m above the 10% with parts up to 20% completely at the end you have to overcome on character.

Gereden in de Tour du Namur. Deze was lood en loodzwaar en (naast de koppenberg) de enige waar ik ooit voet aan de grond moest zetten. Mijn vorm die dag was ook niet ideaal maar deze klim is niet te onderschatten en raakt je lichaam als een drietrapsraket. De 300m boven de 10% met stukken tot 20% volledig op het einde moet je op karakter overwinnen.

This is really a monster. Especially the third and last wall is very heavy. For me a lot heavier than eg the nearby "7 Meuses" which however is much higher in the ranking.

Dit is echt een monster. Vooral de derde en laatste "muur" is zeer zwaar. Voor mij een pak zwaarder dan bv de nabij gelegen "7 Meuses" die nochtans veel hoger in de ranking staat.

The first stage is difficult, the second is long and the end has the highest gradients. But it's more fun to ride up than down! It's better to grit your teeth than to grit your butt and brake.
Even if it's short and you don't get very high, you have to be humble if you want to get to the top without arousing pity and incomprehension from the locals... And pushing your bike is bad for your shoe wedges!

le premier palier est difficile, le second est long et la fin présente les plus fort pourcentages. Mais on prend plus de plaisir à monter qu'à descendre! C'est mieux de serrer les dents que de serrer les fesses et les freins.
Même si c'est court et qu'on arrive pas bien haut, il faut être humble si on veut arriver au sommet sans susciter la pitié et l'incompréhension des autochtones... Puis pousser son vélo, c'est mauvais pour les cales des chaussures!

Heaviest climb in the Ardennes. This because of the 3 times steep parts with at least 20%. This makes it also harder than Huy, Redoute, Stockeu. Too low in the list and undervalued in terms of climbing points.

Zwaarste klim in de Ardennen. Dit vanwege de 3 maal steile delen met minimaal 20%. Hierdoor ook zwaarder dan Huy, Redoute, Stockeu. Te laag in de lijst en ondergewaard qua klimpunten.
