Arolla mountaineering

~ Wednesday 9th July 2008

3 great days out of Arolla. We spent a night at the newly refurbished Vignettes hut, then traversed the Pigne d'Arolla over both summits. The south top is on a fine snowy ridge, well worth the effort.

         After a night at the Dix hut we climbed Mont Blanc de Cheilon which must be one of the best PD routes around. A great mix of snow and rock with a knife edge ridge to finish.
