Enjoyed this climb - actually only did as a warm up for Mont Ventoux - not in the same league as that mind!!! Starts off nice with some decent hairpins, then eases after 4-5k through some villages with even a short downhill section. After this it heads out through woodland up to the ski resorts - I hadn''t checked it out beforehand so wasn''t sure what to expect - steepens up again towards the top with some great views. Worth doing.
My personal climb rating:

This is a nice steady climb - not a classic by any means but a nice way to spend a spare couple of hours
