slantycheeseW Flank ascent  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 12, 2012


Successful, standard ascent of the West Flank. Nice mix of bare rock and glacier travel, with a stunning peak offering the little-known "rear" view of the Matterhorn in the distance. My first true Alpine ascent and where I caught the bug.

Some confusion over which route to take (the snowfield or the rocks next to it) but we ended up on top so all was nice. Fine climb.

Did the Pigne de Arolla - Mont Blanc du Cheilon traverse. So we climbed up via the east ridge (first snow then rock) where I dropped my camera :( and descent via the normal route. For me it was the second time I climbed it :) Read the guide book properly before you climb the east ridge so you know where you should stay on the ridge and where not. A very beautiful but long tour.

virginiapineHigh winds & new snow  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 6, 2007


Solo climb of normal route from Cab. de Dix. Strong N wind at and above Col de Cheilon (gusts of 90km/hr) and several cm of new snow made it a worthy challenge. Interesting technical moves just a few meters from the summit... Started at 5AM and back at hut at 11AM.

NikmanWest ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 8, 2007


I climbed the west ridge with Sebastian. Nice sharp and exposed ridge at the end. Nice views.

The day started clear, but turned into bad weather, but we were already back at the hut, when it started to rain.

LortnocToo bad
Date Climbed: Nov 6, 2006


Turned back a few meters before the summit because of a combination tricky snow conditions, lack of time and approaching bad weather.

Really nice tour, we did not do the normal route because there were to much cravesses so we took the west ridge to hook up with the normal route at the place were the rocky part of the SW ridge starts. Some rain and clouds on the way back while descending the west ridge again. No navigational problems possible since the route is too easy to find, compared to the normal route accross the galcier in clouds.

We were intending on traversing the peak but there were scary cornices and the east ridge was snowed up so we made do with the normal route; it was a really nice climb

October 2005 was exceptionally warm... the snow on the higher slopes of the Cheillon was often so soft that we sunk into it upto our knees. Despite, we had a good but long day on the mountain.

GaffrRoute Climbed: Traverse of the mountain from East to West. Date Climbed: Early August 2001  Sucess!
From the Dix hut with the boys from Speyside we had a fine traverse of the Cheilon which was my first Swiss mountain. Very enjoyable day out with a return for a second night at Dix.
