The Ladeuze is a steep climb in the Flemish Ardennes. The maximum slope is 15 %. Used for the first time in the Ronde in 2003 because of roadworks at the nearby Eikenberg, but features regularly in the women's classics. The climb has a super steep pair of bends about half way up and doesn't get much easier until you emerge on the main road between Oudenaarde and Brakel.
