Coming from the top of the Swiss Bernina pass it is 3 km. steep winding downhill in a beautiful high mountain scenery until you turn left on the main road to the foot of the Forcola di Livigno.
Climb starts with manned Swiss customs post followed by a beautiful waterfall right along the road. Beautiful short and to the top steep route with gentle curves between a desolate rock backdrop.
Pass height with Italian customs is state border (CH/I) and narrow passage between the ridges of the Piz Minor (3049m) and Monte Vago (3067m). You will find Livigno's first tax-free shop with a mountain café.

Wonderful short (literally) cross-border climb in pure natural setting.

Komende vanop de top van de Zwitserse Bernina pas is het 3 km. flink bochtig dalen in een wondermooi hooggebergte decor tot je links de grote weg afdraait naar de voet van de Forcola di Livigno.
Klim start met bemande Zwitserse douanepost gevolgd door een prachtige waterval vlak langs de weg. Mooie korte en naar de top toe steile route met flauwe bochten tussen een desolaat rotsdecor.
Pashoogte met Italiaanse douane is staatsgrens (CH/I) en smalle doorgang tussen de bergkammen van de Piz Minor (3049m) en Monte Vago (3067m). Je vindt er de eerste taxfree shop van Livigno met bergcafé.

Prachtige korte (letterlijk) grensoverschrijdende klim in puur natuur decor.

5 stars! Not exactly the longest climb, but it is a beauty! Just like the descent from the Bernina pass to the foot of this climb. Good to combine those two.

50 meters across the Italian border at Rifugio Tridentina you can eat well for a good price (tax free) and they have excellent desserts.

5 sterren! Niet bepaald de langste klim, maar het is een beauty! Evenals de afdaling vanaf de Berninapas naar de voet van deze klim. Goed te combineren dus, die twee.

50 meter over de Italiaanse grens bij Rifugio Tridentina kun je trouwens prima eten voor een goede prijs (belastingvrij) en ze hebben uitstekende toetjes.

Nice short climb if you from the Bernina Pass back to Livigno rides. If you're based in Livigno, that's an ideal warm-up, start with the longer, less steep side of the Forcola and continue towards the Bernina pass and then back to Livigno via this side. After that I rode up the Passo Eira and Passo Foscagno, and then I had 73km with 1900hm for the first day. The sun was shining and there was still some snow on the slopes.

Mooie korte beklimming als je van de Berninapas terug naar Livigno rijdt. Als je in Livigno zit als uitvalsbasis, dan is dat een ideale opwarmer qua rit, beginnen met de langere minder steile kant van de Forcola en verder richting de Berninapas en daarna terug naar Livigno via deze kant. Ik ben vervolgens de Passo Eira en Passo Foscagno nog opgereden, en dan had ik zo 73km met 1900hm voor de eerste dag. Stralend zonnetje en nog sneeuw op de flanken, ideaal.
