We follow the summer route marked 6 until we come out of the woods and go through a gate. We continue straight ahead along a flat valley and then along the next one heading towards a large pine tree on a rock (2,080 m). From here we can see the Antersasc alpine hut at the end of a plateau. We go diagonally up some terraces, going past the alpine hut until we reach a wide hollow. We enter this hollow where there is easy access, and we go further up until we come out to the right on a mound. We take a right turn, then left again, and up a moderately steep slope until we reach a narrow steep canyon leading to the Forcella de Puez (2,500 m). We go up this impressive canyon with our skis on our shoulders on the higher section. The pass is a steep, exposed traverse heading right, after which we continue slightly downhill below the north face of the Col de Puez. We then head right and go up the valley between Col de Puez and the Piz de Puez. We go back up the valley and, after a series of low peaks, we reach the pass (2,630 m) on the right-hand side of the Col de Puez. From here we can see the long, steep eastern slope of the Piz de Puez. We go back up the steep slope keeping to the left-hand side of the lower section, and to the right hand side of the upper section. We go left just below the crest up a mound and then continue all the way to the summit.
Descent: via the same route.
