Infos & Booking


Let yourself be tempted by this urban via ferrata with two different parts to reach the top of the Bastille ramparts. Before enjoying the view of the whole city of Grenoble and the surrounding mountains (Vercors, Belledonne and Tailelfer massifs), it will be necessary to climb the ladders, pass on the monkeys bridges and on the big footbridge of the first part.

The second part is less vertiginous but a little more physical. Two loopholes are possible for those who do not want to force too much on theur arms.

The descent is easily done by the classic hiking trail of the Bastille and allows to return to the Porte de France (Esplanade).

  • Possibility to do the first part only for a little initiation.
  • The photos of the outing are offered.
