From the Rifugio Carestiato, continue on the little road marked n.549, first steeply north, then easily south and east. Cross the beautiful fields with gentle ups and downs, leave the road and take to the south east the path that goes decisively down towards the Passo Duràn, 1601m, which you will reach in about 45 minutes from the Rifugio Carestiato.
The Rifugio Passo Duràn “Cesare Tomé” is located right on the pass. It is open from beginning of June to end September, and on festive days in May and October. It offers basic hotel services with local cooking and sleeps 22; no winter shelter; electricity; wifi connection. Toilets and shower.

From the Passo Duràn, go along the SS347 to the south, i.e. towards the Agordino area, for just over one and a half kilometres, until the wide bend on the road at Ponte sul Ru de Calèda, c. 1500m, 20 minutes from the pass. From here you can look up and see the imposing towered bulk of the Sass de Calèda.
Leave the SS347 road and take path n.543 to the south, which shortly after goes up to the Forcella Dagarèi, 1620m, from where the path continues south-east, keeping at an average altitude between 1600 and 1700m. Beneath the Tàmmer Grande, you meet path n.594 which comes from the Casèra de la Rova. Continue on the 543 which now goes southwards and climbs moderately up until it meets path 544 which also comes from the Casèra de la Rova, at an altitude of about 1770m. Keep to path n.543, which runs southeastwards, go past the beginning of the path n.542 of the Valle Ru and go on to the Malga (or Casèra) del Moschesìn, 1800m (a reasonable shelter option in case of necessity) and then, uphill, to the Forcella del Moschesìn, 1940m, which looks out onto the harsh Val Prampèr:remains of a small barracks.
Once you come down the saddle, after a few zigzags, take the Sentiero (path) de le Balanzòle to the right (east), which runs beneath the peak of the same name, at the edge of the scree, with gentle ups and downs, until you reach the ample grassy shelf of the Pra de la Vedova and the romantic Rifugio Sommariva al Pramperét, 1857m.
The Rifugio Sommariva al Pramperét is the property of the Oderzo Section of the CAI. The original structure dates back to 1923, and it was renovated in 1995. The beautiful, peaceful setting, the friendliness of the owner and the fine cooking make it a place to remember. It is open from 20th June to 20th September. It offers basic hotel services and sleeps 25 plus 5 in the winter shelter. Lighting with a generator. Inside toilets with shower. CNSAS 118 Rescue station.
