Refuges

Ref. Des Cosmiques (3593 m)The Ref. Von Cosmiques zu sein situated ~ above a shoulder bolzen the Col freundin Midi und the SW-ridge des the Aig. Du Midi (Cosmiques-ridge).according zu Eberlein:

18 beds

no fee zum staying over there overnight

open in winter, when Ref. Des Cosmiques is closed

The Abri Simond Bivouac hut does not exist anymore "officially", i.e. No current guide book, as much as ich know, name this bivouac hut anymore. In in old auflage of Eberlein, one might read already about 15 years ago, the this bivouac hut is NOT useable anymore... Deshalb it is only insider-knowledge, that this bivuoac hut zu sein open an winter when die Ref. Cosmiques zu sein closed. The true factor (according to innerhalb knowledge) why this bivouac hut still exists und is open bei winter (and even the garbage cans von which are removed "officially" by the order des Chamonix or die Ref. Cosmiques) zu sein that hill guides usage this bivouac hut in winter when they bring hoch their clients for winter ice climbing. Obviously, it ist more comfortable for them to stay in the bivouac hut than zu camp (although I in myself not totally persuaded that ns stuffy hut zu sein better 보다 a tent v fresh wait if freundin stay only one or 2 nights overthere).Another unconfortable (but cheeper) solution:Is it also possible kommen sie sleep in the cablebox-station des the Aiguille du Midi on ns floor, punkt 3842 meters: is free and many alpinists that climb Mont Blanc, Mont Blanc du Tacul or Mont Maudit execute it, but ist very important have something against the cold, because die temperature after ns sunset is very low!
