Description

Located at the entrance to the Vallouise Valley in the Écrins Massif, this via ferrata will take you on a very dizzy route that dominates the village of Vigneaux.

Two routes are possible according to your desires and your level: the Voie du Colombier and the Voie de la Balme.

The first part is common to both routes. Then:

  • The easiest route (Voie du Colombier): crossing to the left to join a ladder and then an aerial wall.
  • The sportiest (Voie de la Balme): continue straight over and then you come out on an overhanging chimney of 15m (bars to use well!). Then a last stiff wall makes it possible to leave.

Return by an air path in about 40min.
