pedestrian access

In winter: One of the "Vallee Blanche" ski routes from the Aig du Midi. (1-2h)

In summer:
If there is a lot of snow you can reach the hut by the Vallee blanche, if not come in from Montenvers.
From the Aiguille du Midi (2h30 to 4h)
Check first at the OHM, Chamonix if this is feasible Follow the Vallee Blanche route.

From Montenvers (or walk up from La Praz, Chamonix) 3 to 4h from Montenvers, 6h from Praz

From the Montenvers station follow the path and ladders down onto the Mer de Glace. Keep mainly to the true left side, (right going up), passing underneath the Envers des Aiguilles hut and the Dent du Requin to reach the ladders. Getting off the glacier onto the ladders can be awkward
