La montée vers le col en partant de Seez est parfois un peu "ardue" mais elle offre des vues impressionnantes.Le col par lui même est assez ordinaire mais est à la frontière France-ItalieThe ascent from Séez is sometimes a bit "daunting" but it offers impressive views.

A real challenge for the cyclists but amazing views on top and a great run down on the other side. There is one restaurant for a coffee, really nice home made cakes and lunch food.
