Have been wanting to do this track for years. Took me ages to find too, when there wasn't so much info on it.
Not so sure now, lol.
Great video though.

The old Micheal Caine comment in the Italian Job springs to mind 'nobody move I'v got an idea'

Very cool. Where was the drone pilot? Did you have to keep going backwards and forwards lol

Oh, it wasn't me, haven't done it yet.

Re read my post, I can see it's a bit misleading. I meant it took me ages to locate it on maps. People who know these tracks don't disclose them.

Where is it? I love passes. Im not sure I would do it in the MH though. A trail bike maybe.

It's an old military road, follow track both ways for the fortes.

Although on a bike, you can do the real tracks too. :)

Thanks. Its well south then. We were in that area above Nice and Monaco last year so not far away. Not really explored that part of the Alps that much. Will have to check it out. The co-ordinates you give show a hell of a winding pass but some of the road is on streetview and is a proper (if narrow) road. Looks idea for a trip up on the scoot. Ive really missed not going over there this year. Will put it on the list.

Thats akin to going over Niagra in barrel or crossing a gorge in the rockies on a tight rope

Does anyone know for sure exactly where this is. It looks more like the Dolomite area than West Alps to me. Description or nearby towns please, not co ordinates if possible......steve bristol
