Story by Peter Sigal from , France, submitted on 31/05/2016
This one took me by surprise. I''d say it''s somewhat harder than Joux Plane. The bottom just kicks right up and doesn''t let up for the first 5 km. The last few kms are actually quite pleasant as the gradient finally dips below 10 percent. Then, of course, you can''t keep going because it''s a ski station. More of a training climb than a destination I''d say.

Incredible clmb, it just never lets up. At no point after getting in the climb proper did i think of changing out of the easiest gear (39/27). It was a long slog up but will worth it for the views!

Nice and tough ...and I had 6 kg of weight in my paniers for training purposes. The ride wasn''t as pretty as others in the area so i give it a 4. I''m glad I only looked at the profile after the climb!

I live in the Alps near Cluses so have climbed Colombiere, Joux Plane and Ramaz recently but for me the Plateau Des Saix is the hardest.
