And starting from Ponte Mas, the ascent is 35.5 km long. Over this distance, the elevation gain is 994 meters. The average percentage is 2.8 %. The road to the pass has usually a normal surface, with sometimes dangerous narrow curves and especially in the villages, where you need to take care since the very narrow village roads don’t allow the view around some corners.
