Infos & Booking


I'd like to invite you to explore the "Trois Pucelles" via corda, a varied and spectacular route offering breathtaking views of Grenoble and the surrounding area.

In a magnificent natural setting, this vertiginous route is a blend of hiking, climbing and mountaineering at a very affordable level. You will enjoy climbing and wandering between the impressive limestone peaks of the famous Trois Pucelles rock, at the foot of the Moucherotte mountain in the Vercors massif. For your own safety, you will of course be roped up for the entire outing.

After a 3/4-hour approach walk in the forest, the Trois Pucelles via corda begins with a 30-metre abseil over the void. The route continues along corridors and horizontal ledge systems, then over easy climbing passages to reach the top of the main peak after circling it. From here, you can enjoy panoramic views of Grenoble, the Chartreuse, Belledonne, Vercors and Taillefer massifs. You might even catch a glimpse of Mont Blanc in the distance. To reach the next rocky peak, you will have to cross a gap using a 20-metre-long zip line that I will install: it's the most impressive part of the route, and will undoubtedly leave you with unforgettable memories! All that remains is to descend an easy rocky ridge to the starting point of the via corda. The return journey takes around twenty minutes, on foot, along the same path as the outward journey.

Don't hesitate to give it a try, you're in for a real treat!
