From the secondary summit start 2 ridges that connect the mountain to the Piz d'Agnel on south and the Piz Calderas on north. On the west side, it overhangs the lake of Marmorea with cliffs made of brocken rocks. On the north side it hosts a glacier calle Vadret da Calderas. Tschima da Flix with its neighbors, are placed at the end of val Bever, but the best approach is from the Julier pass or otherwise from Marmorea.
It is commonly climbed in summer but probably mostly in winter by skiers due to its easy approach from the Julier pass. One of the most classic ski route of the area.
At the head of val Bever is placed a confortable hut called "Chamanna Jenatsch
", good place for rests and starting point for the surrounding mountains.
Pano from Tschima da Flix to Piz d'Agnel and the mountains around the Julier pass
Tschima da Flix rise above three valleys:
Val Bever - from Bever village between Saint Moritz and Samedan (Engadina) - very long approach
Val Savriex - from Marmorea 1708m or from Sur 1610m - climbed, but mostly for ski descent
Indirectly also from Val d'Agnel - from la Veduta 2205m (Julier pass) - the best approach
