An easy path leads to the refuge which offers a breathtaking view of the Glacier de la Pilatte and of some of the most famous summits in the Ecrins massif such as Ailefroide, Les Bans and Le Gioberney.
It suits both walkers and mountaineers tackling routes to the surrounding summits or passes such as Col de la Temple, Pic Coolidge and the Ecrins traverse.
