The Promontoire hut embodies all the characteristics we think of when we hear the word "refuge". Clinging to the approach ridge of La Meije, the refuge juts out like the bow of a ship perched on a wave of rock. Although a hut catering primarily for mountaineers, it is also a wonderful destination for experienced hikers.
