The road to the summit is totally paved, in pretty bad conditions. It’s called D963. It’s a very curvy drive. The summit is subject to strong north and north-westerly winds.

The pass is 14.3 km (8,88 miles) long, running from Olmi-Cappella to Palasca. The road to the summit is very steep, hitting a 14% of maximum gradient through some of the ramps. To drive the road without stopping will take most people between 15 and 25 minutes.
