Whoever named this climb the "Petit Ballon" must hate cyclists with a passion. There is nothing "petit" about this Ballon.

The average gradient is misleading, as the first 2kms are more or less flat. After that, it''s 7-11% all the way, except for a stretch about 3 kms from the top.

But it''s a great climb and a must do for anyone visiting the region.

The only drawback is that it''s a bit isolated: after decending the other side, there are only two options: back to Munster, or on to the Platzerwasel, a climb that''s shorter but more irregular and hurts even more. You have been warned.
