Infos & Booking


This via ferrata is located between Crolles and Saint-Hilaire-du-Touvet in the Chartreuse Massif. Here the environment is wild and the views over the valley of Grésivaudan and the Belledonne massif are gorgeous (when sunny, Mont Blanc can be seen!).

After climbing on a pillar, the "Parcours des Lavandières" takes you to the foot of the Oule waterfall that you cross by trying not to be too watered, to continue alternating between vertical and horizontal parts to finish by the famous ladder of the "maquisards".
