Since I like France so much I guess I'd go for the Alp d Huez as well. But seeing I'm not there...I'll stay with: Doreen/Hekpoort/Krugersdorp hill all in a day .... Thumbs%20Up

Went up William Nicol 2 weeks ago, along HP, turn left and up past past Flora Clinic and up to Ontdekkers, not very long, but quite steep I must say.

Profile from the Marmotte.

 

The climbs in order; Col de la Croix de Fer, Col du Telegraphe, Col du Galibier, Alpe d'Huez.

 

Alpe d'Huez looks small in comparison to the Galibier, but it was much much harder!

The Col d'Aubisque from last years Etape rises 1150m in 16.5km, only 7% average gradient but the last 8km are all over 9%.  Have a look at the difference between the Etape and the Jock "hills":20061012_123941_Jock_v_Etape2.jpg
