pedestrian access

From Grands Montet summit (3233 m) descend on the Glacier des Rognons and descend the Rognons moraine (2754 m) towards the summit by taking the rocky Rognon to the 3000m via the right or left depending on the snow cover. Take the slope towards the right, to the south-east and you reach the glacier at an altitude of 2580m. Go back up glacier on its left bank, which is less crevassed, to an altitude 2650m where you traverse diagonally towards the right bank and the refuge, perched at the foot of the moraine under Aiguille d'Argentière. 1H30 from Grands Montets (be careful of glacial formations). Access in 3h30 from the Lognan intermediate station, difficult in summer, follow the track (summer is the same as winter) until the altitude 2338m, then skirt the glacier via its left bank. Traverse the moraine of the Rognons using the ladders then a trail to reach point 2580m on the level part of the glacier. Access is easier with snow in winter, skirt the moraine of the Rognons via the glacier. Access in 5h00 from Argentière by going up the Pierre à Ric track.
