The col d''oeillon is a very nice and steady climb, staring from the Rhone-river. Very low on traffic, nice views, good road surface. Once you''ve reached the col you can choose to climb on to the top where a sort of weatherstation is build. This part is a lot steaper than the climb to the col (up to 10%) and climbs to 1380m.
If you are in the neighbourhood, take the opportunity to do this category 1 climb.
