You will reach this ski resort after a total climb of almost 12.5 km, either from Tresenda or Stazzona, turning left into the mountain road to Santa Cristina. After about 1 km, the ascent becomes demanding and the gradient remain steep until a place called Mezzamonte, where a group of huts offer a good landmark after so many roads criss-crossing the dense wood. There are several long straight sections where it is impossible to release the big effort. Once you have finally reached the pass, the road becomes gentle and at the crossroad you can choose if you prefer to go on towards Trivigno, suffering again for a while, or to go down to the nearby town of Aprica.
