Ascent Trip Report

This peak is a drive-up quite popular with cyclists. The road is marked each km with a sign giving elevation.
To find the beginning, drive along the road D900B south of Gap. Between the villages of Remollon and Espinasses, there are two turn-offs, both signposted for Théus. The signs for Mont Colombis begin almost immediately. Although it looks like you should also be able to approach the mountain from the north, I'm not sure if the road is open to the public.

There is a small car park with viewfinders just beyond the summit, which the road goes almost exactly over.
