I live about 35 Km away from the Mur de Huy, so I climb it about 10 times a year. I know the climb relatively well, but everytime I am surprised it is that long. I reach the the top everytime with a hearth rate of +/- 200. It is a killing climb, but I love it. For those who climb it by MTB, there is on offroad descent wich is pretty nice to relax after the climb.

As everyone knows, this climb has been the main feature of the ""Fleche Wallonne"" for quite some time, and theres good reasons for that. It begins in the center of Huy with a relatively easy slope. 400 meters later, you leave the main road for a small street. Immediately, the percentage rises to a fairly uncomfortable 10%. This is were most people kill themselves, riding a touch too hard... until they reach the ""S"". At 19%, these 2 curves give the climb its name:""The wall"". Unfortunately, by the time you clear this, youve only reached the half way mark! The slope does relax a bit after this, but not enough to notice the difference. By the time the road flattens at the top, pretty much everyones blown up!
