'The Hammer'

Has anyone done this or from the area and know what the climbs are like?
I have just entered it, the long route is 160km and 3600m of climbing and the route profile shows about 25 seperate climbs!

I'm guessing short and steep with so many of them but its difficult to tell from the compressed route profile image.

I did the Marmotte OK but I know that 4 long alpine climbs is a different beast to 25 steep ones!
Perhaps more along the lines of the Fred Whitton, which it would probably be great strength training for, coming a month before it in April.
