Lauturet, Telegraphe, and the Col de Croix de Fer. Anyone else done these climbs?

I do not care what anyone says the Alpe D'Huez is one seriously tough climb and the toughest of the climbs that I did.

Last September I did most of the major climbs around Grenoble and Barcelonette: Alpe D'Huez, Telegraphe, Galibier, Glandon, Madeliene, Bonette, Lombarde Izoard, Iseran, etc. The combination of Telegraphe/Galibier is one very tough climb and was very cold at the top. However, the toughest climb had to be Mont Ventoux - particularly as the climb tends to be into the wind (as if 10% grade wasn't enough).
