The south ascent to Col Amic cannot compete with the north ascent of Soultz in terms of the beauty of the route, but it is still highly recommended. The route is quite spacious, the incline is rather moderate, but it is a bit unrhythmic to drive. Forest passages alternate with more promising meadow slopes.
