The mountain's peak, consisting of a ridge with four aligned peaks, can be seen from most of Cuneo's plain. The ridge is divided between two different rock formations, one made up of granitoid gneiss, the other of mixed gneiss and different kinds of migmatite.

The mountain is an integral part of the nature park Parco Naturale delli Marittime. Fauna includes marmot, chamois and, at higher altitudes, the Alpine ibex.
