Pleasant walk, through the cool of the forest at first, then above the tree line with
magnificent views of the glaciers, the Aiguilles de Chamonix, Mont-Blanc and the
Grand Balcon Nord.
From this Point I , join the start by crossing the Grépon car park in the
direction of the ski jump. Take the path on your right and follow it through the
forest and across gullies up to where it meets the forest track coming from Les
Molliasses. Go straight across the track, then up opposite after passing under the
lift cables; don’t take the path going to Pre du Rocher on your left. Keep going
up the Plan du Trois in the forest, then climb up to the refuge, passing between
some large boulders.
Snack bar near the station. Private refuge: food, dormitories.
You can come down by the lift.
