The pass is located between the Val Camonica and the Valtellina, in the towns of Tirano and Corteno Golgi. The road to the pass is very dangerous. It’s very irregular, asphalted and very steep with some stretches around 20%. Speed limit to 20 km/h. Trucks and semi trucks are forbidden. It’s closed in winters and was an old military track.

A refuge near the top of the mountain hosts a winery, gift store, and sandwich shop. Starting from Lombro, the ascent is 9.43 km long. Over this distance, the elevation gain is 920 meters.
