In bad weather the 2 huts can easily be linked by descending from the Branca, then a steady ascent up the main valley leading N to the Pizzini Hut.
Our route described takes a more challenging route, with 2 optional summits.
Take the wide open valley heading NE from the Branca Hut.
This finishes with a steep climb up to the Cevedale / Pasquale Col at 3430m.
From here either of the 2 summits can be climbed, usually by cramponning.
The lovely descent to the Pizzini Hut lies the other side and is down the Cede Glacier, heading N, then NW, then W down to the hut
