The road to the summit, also known as Montaña Sagrada del Santo Alto Rey, is asphalted, but very narrow and really steep, with sections up to 14%.  Do not travel this pass in severe weather conditions. Avalanches, heavy snowfalls and landslides can occur anytime, being extremely dangerous due to frequent patches of ice. The asphalted road ends in a ruined military base with some communications tower.  But a gravel road continues up to the summit, where there’s an old church. The road includes gradients of 14% for 4 kilometers.
