Infos & Booking


Located in the Grésivaudan valley in Isère, the "Rocher de l'envers" via ferrata is a very beautiful and bucolic via. It is the most recent one in the Chartreuse massif (opened in August 2014).

It proposes to you an ideal route for families or beginners. This is not where you will get tired but you will remember its green character, its magnificent and sometimes vertiginous views on the waterfalls of the Alloix and on the Belledonne massif!

In short, it's a quiet route, for a beautiful and soft via ferrata initiation.

The pictures of the outing are offered.
