Infos & Booking


The via ferrata of "Rocher de l'envers" is a very beautiful and bucolic via, the most recent of Chartreuse Massif (August 2014). An ideal route for families or beginners. This is not where you will get tired but you remember its green character, its magnificent and sometimes dizzy views on the waterfalls of the Alloix!

A quiet course, a beautiful and soft initiation.

The pictures of the outing are offered!
