This summit is the northern limit of the Pizzo Tambò chain and a special panoramic point over the Rhein valley, Adula group and all Swiss alps.
It has a not fine north wall and a not fine side over the Val Curciusa (west) but is very often hicked from East side where Splugen ski-area allows easy and short access.

Especially known for its fine ski-mountaneering route
