From the Dix hut ascend to the Col de Serpentine. From here follow the East ridge to the summit, initially snow, then rock to II. Descend the SW ridge route.

Ticklists: Top quality Alps under 4000m.

Went in opposite direction to normal, which is, I believe, harder. Needed two abseils.

V little snow, had to cross rock band (I) halfway up broad ridge from Col du Serpentine. Ridge was closer to III at times than II. One abseil needed to descend first gendarme.

started in the Arolla valley 200m below the pas de chevres, long day 15hours back to Arolla. Well worth the effort, had to rush down the SW ridge due to thunder storm.Great alpine route , would recommend to everybody as a must do.

First early start, first wet glacier with cravasses to avoid for me at front, then cloud descended for loose ridge.

Fresh snow made the 'horns' a bit tricky. Ridge to the top is cracking, big holds and excellent rock for the Valais

A wonderful day - a beautiful mountain, interesting mixed route, spectacular scenery (especially the huge cornices on the first summit), extensive views over the Valais, Grand Combin and Mont Blanc, perfect weather.
