Tête Rousse Hut

A well known Mont Blanc hut and often the first step on the mountaineers' climb to the summit.
3167 m
Group size
June - September

Refuge de Tête Rousse is located at an elevation of 3,167 m in the massif of Mont Blanc, right at the foot of the Grand Couloir and next to the Tête Rousse Glacier. It is the second hut on the “normal” route to the summit of Mont Blanc and the one we usually stay at on the first day of our Mont Blanc climb.

The hut is reached by a 3-hour, 900 m elevation gain hike from Nid d’Aigle, the highest train station of Tramway du Mont-Blanc. Although sleeping here adds an extra few hours to reach the summit on the next day, the hut has more sleeping space and is a safer starting point to avoid the rockfall of the Grand Couloir, which is more prevalent later in the day.

The hut can accommodate up to 72 people in rooms and dormitories in the summer season. A base camp on the snowfield next to the hut was built in 2019, where it is also possible to spend the night (with prior reservation). Besides the half-board meals included for our tour, the hut also offers other meals and drinks and can even make you a lunch package for the hike. Keep in mind that they do not cater to food restrictions. The hut is also too high for running water, so we should bring our own or buy it in the hut.
