A climb made famous by the Giro d'Italia, the really steep side is from the west - not pictured here.|
The east side has a couple of very steep sections but is not difficult overall.
Not really high enough to be spectacular, though it is pleasant to be out of the smoggy valleys on either side.
Technically it is the Passo di Foppa, the true Mortirolo pass being a rough crossing close by to the north-east - but all the road signs are for the Mortirolo, so perhaps the name is changing with usage.
