Infos & Booking


I propose you to go on a beautiful via ferrata itinerary located in a wild environment, in the heart of the Chartreuse massif. The first part of the Roche Veyrand via ferrata in Saint-Pierre-d'Entremont is ideal for a discovery of the activity! This fun and easy course will delight young and old alike, during an outing with family or friends.

After an approach walk on a forest path, the via allows you to quickly gain height on a pretty colored rock. A first slab without difficulty, the Dolmen bridge and several other slabs follow, with many natural holds. An escape route allows you to return to the start via a steep path. The route continues by crossing to the left, goes up a nice dihedral and by some more or less vertiginous but not very physical passages arrives at the "passerelle du pas loquace", 17 meters long. A last slab leads to the end of the first part of the via ferrata. It is then time to take advantage of the magnificent view of the high summits of Chartreuse, then to go back down by the path of Clapiers, or to reach the summit in about 30 minutes or to continue on the second very difficult part to realize the complete ascent of this via ferrata of Roche Veyrand.
