This hut about a third of the way down was our lunch stop. Rustic, to say the least, perched on a cliff, great coffee!
Chains provided a security blanket at a couple of places.
On a clear day, you could see 5,000 feet down to Chamonix and across the valley to Mont Blanc, at more than 15,000 feet. Clearing weather is in the forecast! At times today, it felt like we were walking in the jet stream.
