A stunning descent through incredible scenery the lacks the usual alpine technicalities and dangers to provide a real pleasure fest (NB there are a couple of sections that are best walked). Only downside is the epic approach and the return journey if accessed from the south (I hiked/biked back up rather than making the 70km loop).
Make sure you take the right turn after passing the lake and make the short hike to gain another col, as the alternative descent to the left is reputedly much more technical.

Access Info

A long pedal and hike from either the north or south are required to reach the spectacular Col d'Anterne where this descent starts.
