Story by Ed from , Belgium, submitted on 02/10/2014
Short but steep climb. Beware of the 90° bend and make sure you''re on your smallest drive before it. You can try to avoid the cobblestones by taking the small gutter. Nice view on the Flemish Ardennes from the top.

Story by A Low from Winnipeg, Canada, submitted on 24/07/2008
Climbed this on a freezing cold, rainy day in March while doing the RVV route. The cobbles were so slippery that I fell twice, then had to walk up because I couldnt start pedaling again. Steep little climb which left me with great memories-never before or since have I fallen while climbing!
