How to get there This is a fine climb from Saint-Jean-de-Maurienne (568m) up through Jarrier. It has some steep parts and the last little stretch is peculiar with warning that you go here on your own risk. This is obviously a pass, but you may not be able to go down all the way on the other side even on foot as it looks very steep in most directions there. I climbed it a bit more straight up, but the last part up to the top road was a bit bad gravel road, so only list the shortest asphalt climb here. Asphalt was missing in one or two places at the top and the road might not be fixed too often here.
Other comments This is good to combine with a climb up via Col des Trois Croix (1509m) to La Toussuire (1732m), which is famous for some stages of the Tour de France finishing here.
