pedestrian access

From the Plan de l'Aiguille, (mid station of the l'aiguille du Midi cable car,) go onto the Pèlerins glacier and head towards the Bossons glacier by contouring under the cable ca. Continue traversing under the line of the old cable car and the Rond glacier, (serac fall risk). From the Bossons glacier, traverse through the maze of seracs and crevasses until the Jonction, directly below the Grands Mulets hit (3051m). Go up the snow slope leading to the hut.

Alternative without using the lift
Start form the Cerro parking (1270m) next to the Mont Blanc tunnel entrance. Take the path on the true right bank of the torrent. Go up the path to the old cable car station, (La Para), and then traverse towards the Bossons glacier, without losing height. Follow the above route to the hut, (1760m height gain.)
