Croce di Poverzone

Croce di Poverzone is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 1.908m (6,256ft) above the sea level, located in the heart of the Valtellina, in Italy.

The road to the pass is gravel and dirt (the last 7 km). Usually impassable in winters. The average gradient to the summit is 10% with some sections up to 18%. Part of it (up to Triangia at 800 m/2623 ft) was once climbed in the Tour of Italy. The road is usually impassable from October to June (weather permitting).
