How to get there

From the west one climbs the D70 from Camp de Milo (500m) via La Bollčne-Vésubie to the pass. From the southeast you climb from Sospel (363m) the D2566 to the pass. From the south you climb D21 from Lucéram (650m) via Pas de l’Escous (1008m) and Baisse de la Cabanette (1371m) to the pass or via D2566 and Col de Saint-Roch (991m); Baisse de la Cabanette (1371m) to the pass. One would then likely have started further down at L’Escarčne (361m).

You could also start the southern climb in Contes (192m) and climb the D15 via Coaraze (619m) to Col de Savel (968m), Col de Saint-Roch and take the D2566 to Baisse de la Cabanette and continue to the pass. (It is roughly 140m of climbing in the ups and downs after Coaraze.) It is 210m relatively easy gravel road up to the pass from the Peďra Cava road, which later reaches 1618m before Col de Turini (1606m).
