Via Ferrata

This via ferrata is made up of 2 parts or 2 via ferratas, whichever you prefer.

The first one is very easy for children or beginners and you will pass through the guts of the cliff.

The second one starts to the left of the climbing rock. It is a bit more vertiginous, but it is accessible for all.


Way Back

The approach walk and the way back can both seem long.
