Colle Barant is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 2.381m (7,811ft) above the sea level, located in the Province of Turin in the Italian region Piedmont.
The gravel road to the summit, also known as Colle del Baracun, is extremely steep and narrow, with dangerous slippery sections and severe drops. It’s an old military trail designed for army vehicles. Very exposed, with a high accident risk. At the summit there’s an old fort called Fort de l’Infernet. It can be closed anytime due to snow. This is an old military road that will pass endless old forts/gun placements/barracks/etc.
