Brenta Dolomites - The access valleys and paths. Val di Ceda.

The Ceda Valley is one of the valleys least used as a route into the Brenta Group. It has steep slopes all the way along the route except for the stretch between Ponte Romano and Coste del Bondai. At the end of its course the Rio Ceda river forms the Cascate di Ponte Romano waterfall. From Lake Molveno (823 m.) you come to the Ceda Pass (2,223 m.). The valley runs from the south-east to the north-west. 
The Cima Dion, Piccolo Dos di Dalum and Cima Ceda Orientale peaks bound the valley in the south-west, while the Cima Sparaveri, Monte Cresole and Monte Daino peaks bound it in the north-east. Two ruined malghe or shepherds’ huts show that people once came up here. The absence of a bivouac or refuge along the route does not make the climb up this beautiful but wild valley very tempting: most people prefer to get to the Pedrotti Refuge along the better-known Seghe Valley.
