Climb to a monastery that was built in the fifteenth century, but burned down in the seventies of the last century. Now it looks more like a ruin from a horror movie.

Tom Dumoulin says this is one of the toughest climbs in Limburg. When asked which climb he looks at with "slight fear and trembling" his answer is: "Then I think of the climb of De Piemert; a difficult climb from Slenaken to the provincial road in the direction of the Belgian De Planck. It's very tough."
