Nice, surprising climb that not many cyclists will know how to find. It is similar to the Gulperberg or Kromhagerweg in the Netherlands, but with 3 real hairpin bends in it. From the start it is 12 % and in the bends it is even a bit steeper, around 15%. The road surface is a little bit off in some places, but this makes it even more challenging.

Leuke, verrassende klim die niet veel fietsers zullen weten te vinden. Het is er eentje vergelijkbaar met de Gulperberg of Kromhagerweg in Nederland, echter met 3 echte haarspeldbochten er in. Vanaf het begin al 12 % en in de bochten zelfs nog iets steiler, rond de 15%. Wegdek is op sommige stukken wat weg, maar dit maakt het juist nog wat uitdagender.

Don't have any illusions about this climb: This will be stomping and raking. The start is a bit tricky to find but is opposite the entrance to Castle de Commanderie. It looks like a driveway but after the houses the road continues. From the start, the road immediately starts to climb. You pass a barrier that seems not to have been closed for ages (you can also pass it) and enter the forest where the road immediately goes up. You pass an information board which is one of the few reference points in terms of steepness. Further on it gets a little flatter along the edge of the forest but the next part (especially the first turn) is devastating for your legs and could possibly force you to get off the bike. Mind on 0 and keep on pounding is the motto. The road winds nicely up through the forest but you see very little of it. Suddenly the road flattens out and you're at the top. The asphalt stops at a side road and here you can easily turn. In the descent beautiful views of Sint-Pieters-Voeren.
In general, the climb is on reasonable asphalt (this ends after the climb, the road continues as flat forest road) but at 1 place there is grass growing in the middle (there are two asphalt tracks left) and elsewhere the sides are crumbled. It is always possible to stay on good asphalt but the good trail can be narrow. Now (in winter) there was quite a bit of leaf litter on the road, this may be better in spring and summer.

Maak je geen illusies over deze klim: Dit wordt stampen en harken. Het begin is wat lastig te vinden maar ligt tegenover de ingang van Kasteel de Commanderie. Het lijkt op een inrit maar na de huizen loopt de weg dus door. Vanaf het begin begint de weg meteen te klimmen. Je passeert een slagboom die zo te zien al tijden niet is dicht geweest (je kan er ook langs) en gaat het bos in waarbij de weg meteen omhoog knalt. Je passeert een informatiebord wat één van de weinige referentiepunten is qua steilte. Verderop wordt het even iets vlakker langs de bosrand maar het stuk daarna (en dan vooral de eerste bocht) is verwoestend voor je benen en zou mogelijk tot afstappen kunnen dwingen. Verstand op 0 en doorstampen is het devies. De weg slingert leuk door het bos omhoog maar daar zie je nog maar weinig van. Ineens vlakt de weg af en ben je boven. Het asfalt houdt op bij een zijweg en hier kan je makkelijk keren. In de afdaling prachtig uitzicht op Sint-Pieters-Voeren.
Over het algemeen is de klim over redelijk asfalt (dit loopt wel dood na het klimtraject, de weg gaat verder als vlakke bosweg) maar op 1 plaats groeit er gras in het midden (er blijven dan twee asfaltsporen over) en elders zijn de zijkanten afgebrokkeld. Het is altijd wel mogelijk om op goed asfalt te blijven maar het goede spoor kan smal zijn. Nu lagen er (in de winter) wel flink wat bladresten op de weg, dit kan in het voorjaar en de zomer beter zijn.
