The road to the summit, located in the Lepontine Alps, is rocky and gravel. The slope is very steep, consists of loose stones and becomes even steeper and rocky in the upper part. The wind is usually quite strong at mountain areas. High winds blow here all year long. Even in summer you can confront with snowy days. Temperatures here in the winter are brutally cold. This trail can be done only a very narrow time-frame in the summer (end of August). The steep is over than 30%. Avoid driving in this area if unpaved mountain roads aren't your strong point.
