In the northern French Alps, near to the Cormet de Roselend

Easily accessible from the Roselend with very little extra effort, this pass offers terrific views across the reservoir towards Mont Blanc.

The north-west side is a steep and difficult climb from Beaufort, but the south-east is easy from the reservoir.

Halfway up the easy side a handy bar with a sunny terrace has the best views of all.
