pedestrian access

In Summer
Either From La Tour by the moraine, steep but quick. (4h)
In winter you can also go by the moraine: Follow the pistes then go towards the Pischeu icefall, which descends directly to the moraine. Ascend the chains on the true right bank of the ice fall. This is steep and sometimes the chains are partially buried, a rope may be useful.)
Or if the Col de Balme chairlifts are working, go to the top of these and take the traverse path around to join the moraine at about 2450m, (2h from the lift to the hut.)

In Winter (Ski) :
From La Tour go up the piste, and then to the foot of the moraine on the true right side of the Tour glacier, (Water catchment at 2020m) Go up the moraine, or if there is enough snow, up the bowl to the left, (looking upwards) to the hut, (2702m).
