A short drive from Grimentz brings us to the Barrage de Moiry (Moiry dam), and a further 3 km along the lake we park at the end of the road. The hike to Cabane de Moiry (Moiry Hut) starts off benignly enough, but after traversing across the lateral moraine it heads steeply uphill in multiple switchbacks to the Cabane de Moiry at 2825m. This is a real luxury alpine hut that can sleep over 90 guests! The views of the Moiry Glacier and surrounding peaks are fantastic; the glacier itself is a wild mess of serac and icefall. This is a great half-day hike, short (about 2.5 hrs return) but with 600m elevation gain.
