Hairpins, hairpins, hairpins that was the order of the day climbing this little gem just outside of Ugine. The Col De L'Arpettaz is the most enjoyable climb I have ever done. 16km of beauty on a small backroad. The only reason the tour has not ridden this is due to how narrow it is.

I was reasonably confident that I would be able to do the first day, but what of the next days. Today my climb was through a pass called Col de la Colombiere with an average grade of 6%, a climb of 1100 meters, over a distance of 16km.
