The La Chal Via Ferrata awaits you for an experience rich in thrills and discoveries on the edge of the cliffs of the Col du Glandon road!
Halfway between climbing and hiking, the via-ferrata is an alpine route equipped with rungs and cables. It requires specific equipment and minimal knowledge of climbing progression techniques.

The route: We start the route by a steep pillar leading to the ridge of Les Moulins, easy but very aerial, from where we discover the village. We then pass the 21m footbridge, very gassy, ​​at the end of which we can exit through a loophole.
The second part is more athletic and very aerial. After crossing 2 rope bridges (7 and 15m), a steep wall and a ledge, we arrive at the difficulty of the course: the oblique crack, short but very steep and very athletic. The rest of the route is without difficulty.
The arrival is at the top of Montrond at 1522 meters above sea level with a view of the whole valley and of Mont Blanc.
