Colle Fauniera - I was lucky enough to cross this narrow road when it was still closed

Tunnel et Col du Parpaillon -
unpaved, old military road, connecting two of the deepest valleys in the French Alps

Wuerzjoch -
especially the narrow approach on the south side makes this interesting

a shelf road with steep drop offs and several dark tunnels

highest point on a three pass dayloop
