A very pleasant walk through the cool of the woods 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 point I, go to the start by crossing the Grépon parking lot in the direction of the jumping board. Take the path on the right and follow it through the forest or corridor until you reach the forest track coming from Molliasses. Cross it under the cables of the cable car while going up in front of it, then leave on the left the path of the Pré du Rocher. Continue in the forest by the Plan du Trois. Continue above between big boulders until the refuge.
Refreshment bar near the cable car. Private refuge : dormitories - restaurant at the arrival.
Possibility to go back down by cable car. Other departure possible from Les Pèlerins.
