|How to get there||
This pass is located on a ridge road between two higher passes: Passo della Foppa (1855m) and Monte Padrio (1867m). The starts in Lombro (901m) or lower down at Edolo (685m) on a road not often shown on maps. The Megno/Doverio road is quite steep with some stretches around 20% (signs suggests 25%, which is not quite true) and on this side it is a highly irregular climb. This side is just a little less hard than the famous nearby Passo della Foppa/Pas de la Foppa (Passo del Mortirolo) (1855m).
The first part of the long climb arrives at the ridge at 1825m and then the road descends to 1792m before it climbs again to 1872m and then it goes down to not far from the actual pass. The pass goes across the road here and geographically it is located some hundred metres to the north on a path, but there is or used to be (?) a sign on the road here (the road is also sign-posted for the pass). After the pass the road continues to the ridge road high point (1932m) and then continues rather flat with a little descent to the Passo della Foppa.
|Other comments||No water found on the climb as I can remember. The pass is actually located some metres away from the road on a forest path (track) going down north. See also the Monte Padrio (Valico di Trivigno) (1867m) climb, which is on the same road going west of the Monte Padrio. Also see: Col Carette di Val Bighera (2130m). The photo is taken on the ridge road to/from Passo della Foppa.
