Like the classics in Limburg (Keutenberg, Kruisberg, etc.), as a resident of the tri-border region, you have to stomp up here too. Although I personally find the Mur and La Redoute a little harder than the Hellingen in the Heuvelland. In any case, do not overdo it at the beginning, otherwise you pay for it at the end and prefer to get out of the saddle and to the limit on the last few meters.
