In the AC guide, this is described as the traverse of the full Breithorn ridge. Thus, my route was from the KM cable car station (first lift 6:30am) across and along the glacier, and then the full ridge back from Roccia Nera. Good rock and ice, several abseils, a hefty ascent to the central summit (looks worse from a distance than it really is), and a few airy steps looking down the whole North Face under you. Speed is the key.

Half traverse. Short and sweet. 4.5h lift to lift.
Full traverse of all 5 summits after spending the night at the Rossi Volante bivi hut. 6:50 from the bivi to the KM lift station.

Lovely route. Nice climbing on the rock sections and great views.
