How to get there This is the last pass to the east on the Assietta ridge road and the next highest one – the pass giving the road its name. For details on this ridge road and the way up there, see Colle di Lauson (2490m).
Other comments One could possibly cycle east toward Gran Serin and reach another pass before the road descends down the Susa valley (probably this road is not easily cyclable). There is a path continuation which takes in yet more passes east until it reaches Colle delle Finestre. This is the only pass where I could take a photo before it got dark.
