|How to get there||This pass is on the south side of the Col d’Izoard road and is located on the parking place at the famous Casse Deserte. The climb to here from Château-Queyras (1353m) is the main difficulty on the Col d’Izoard pass climb. It is quite steep after Arvieux.|
|Other comments||There are two signs announcing this pass at the parking place, but its authenticity as a true pass has been debated. On this map excerpt at centcols.org website you could see a path leading off (to another valley) from the point of this pass, so it is apparently correct. For cyclists this is just a place on the way to or from Col d’Izoard (2360m) (see that pass for more information).
