Eén van de monumenten uit de Giro d'Italia op gefietst vanuit fietsknooppunt Cortina.
Eerste kilometers om vertrekstad uit te klimmen zijn identiek aan de Passo Falzarego klim (zie Climbfinder).
Je verlaat na enkele haarspeldbochten de drukke Dolomietenweg N48 door in Pocol links af te draaien. Dan is het wonderwel even bergaf om daarna te starten met het continue stevige steil klimwerk met weinig recuperatiemogelijkheden over 25 haarspeldbochten in een onbewoonde bergwereld.
Eerste deel door dichtbeboste bergflanken geleidelijk overgaande in alm weiden met koeien en naar het einde toe boven de boomgrens komt tussen de rotsen de top in zicht.
Naast een cafe/restaurant en een kapel biedt de pashoogte voor mij één van de mooiste panoramisch uitzichten van de Dolomieten met de top van de Nuvolau als blikvanger.
Er zijn kilometerpalen met de afstand tot de top. Het wegdek is prima maar er is soms zomers toeristisch verkeer.

Prachtige topklim langs beide kanten!
