Route description

Lac de Châteaupré - Cabane de Moiry

From Lac de Châteaupré, up valley from the turquoise-blue waters of Lac de Moiry, a path leads first eastwards, then gradually south over alpine meadows and moraine debris to the crest of the east lateral moraine of the Glacier de Moiry. Follow the moraine a short way then drop down into the depression behind it. A good zigzag path now leads steeply up SE up to the hut on its rocky shoulder (2825 m).
