I was screening the Benelux Map to see the location of the BIG's I had not claimed yet.
I was surprised to see I had not claim this BIG yet.

But soon I realized why, when I read the details. A few years ago I reached this summit by using Ruelle Toussaint, thereby only climbing the last of the 3 "Mur's".d

But this way is not listed and can therefore not be claimed. Overall its pretty much comparable in effort and one could also say this is a NW route to the top.

But I am still in doubt whether I should claim this BIG.

Yes, the first wall of the ruelle Toussaint is much steeper than the first wall of the three walls, but now the Ruelle Toussaint has been broken by the neighbours who didn't like to see a lot of cyclists passing just near their garden. The city allowed them to break the asphalt and the first 50 meters are completely unrideable now. Pity !

But well, of course, you can claim it. The effort was or the same, otherwise higher. Congratulations for your new claims, Eibert.

Hi,
Het antwoord ligt bij jouw ! De aangewezen toegangen zijn niet absoluut opgelegd maar alleen op prijs gesteld door de organisatoren. "Of course", het moet uiteraard een stijging blijven ! Maar dit blijft toch helemaal relatief (ingeschreven in een rondreis of niet, beklimming met pak en zak, rot weer, na 150 km, enz.) Dezelfde beklimming kan telkens een verschillend gevoel geven !
In ieder geval, als je uit het noorden komt, ben je verplicht van aan de oever van de Maas te starten. Dus, voor mij, is de stijging geldig !
Om te sluiten, zolang je gevoel OK is, dan is alles OK !

Wat mij wel stoort is het feit dat ik geen ruelle Toussaint terug vind ?
Gaat het wel over BIG nr 120 ?
