The cliff (near a quarry) is immersed in the countryside of the municipality of Oratino. A small strip of forest separates it from the street and its noises, allowing climbers a fair privacy. It was the second Molisana crag to be born, after that of Colle dell'Orso: its proximity to Campobasso and its good exposure make it a very popular place, especially in the cold months.
