Infos & Booking


Let yourself be tempted by this via ferrata with two different parts to get out at the top of the Bastille ramparts. Before enjoying the view of the whole city of Grenoble and the surrounding mountains, it will be necessary to climb the ladders, pass on the monkeys bridges and on the great footbridge of the first part.

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

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

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