One of the classic high Alpine passes. it is the 3rd highest in the Alps.

More fun than a barrel of monkeys. This road has it all- riding south you start in a canyon, opens up midway and it is pure fun all the way to the top. There is a tunnel that cuts about 200 meters of the top, but if you take it you miss one of the best views in the alps- so ride to the top, stop the bike and take it all in.

It can get crowded during peak times in the summer with everything with wheels and don’t go near it when the tour de France is in town.
