A first cat climb that is a great warm up to some of the HC climbs in the area, a pretty climb out of Le Cluzac. I climbed the Col Du Aravis prior to that, but you could come up the Col du Colombiere. The Saisies rises steadily under the trees to give some shade early on, as it opens out you have lovely views across the valley and town. There is about 1km of downhill before the last 3km kicks up, so you can get your breath back before attacking the last part. A lovely climb.
