Passo godibile, consigliato "a senso unico"

Passo alpino che raggiunge quota 2000 a pochi chilometri dalle grandi città e quindi spesso molto frequentato dai motociclisti. Consigliata salita da Morbegno (e non da San Pellegrino) poichè permette di godersi meglio i tornanti ed il cambio repentino del paesaggio che dal mosco emerge fino alla cima più spoglia. Panorama eccellente sul versante nord alla sera con il calar del sole.
