The Tête Rousse Hut
Tête Rousse Hut
(French: Refuge de Tête Rousse) is a mountain hut in the Mont Blanc massif
Mont Blanc massif
in the French Alps. It is located beside the Tête Rousse Glacier
Tête Rousse Glacier
at an altitude of 3,167 m. Owned by the Club Alpin Francais (CAF), it is normally reached after a multi-hour climb from Nid d'Aigle, the highest stop on the Mont Blanc
Mont Blanc
Tramway. It is commonly used by mountaineers attempting to climb the normal (Gouter route) to the summit of Mont Blanc. Staying here, rather than continuing to the higher Gouter Hut adds an extra 2–3 hours to the ascent of Mont Blanc, but is less cramped than the latter and also avoids having to climb the dangerous 'Grand Couloir' later in the day when the risk of injury from stonefall is at its greatest. The mountain refuge was completely refurbished in 2003 and can accommodate 72 people in summer and 16 people in winter. Because of the popularity of the Goûter route to ascend Mont Blanc, both huts only accept reservations in advance, and also require confirmation three days before arrival. Camping at high altitude is banned on this route, and especially around the Goûter Hut, however it is permitted on the snowfield above the Tête Rousse Hut.[1] References[edit]
