Via ferrataImpression

Come and climb the north face of the Moléson with the aid of 2 via ferrate. Almost 400 m high and equipped with rungs in the rock, these alpine itineraries are both thrilling and safe (thanks to a more than 1300 m long fixed cable and rental equipment to attach yourself to it). Ascend by either « Le Pilier » or « La Face».

Attention : The via ferrata are put out of service during the winter. The cables are unhooked where they are exposed, especially on the access and exit sections of the via ferrata. In spring, before opening, the via ferrata are checked as soon as they are accessible. The date depends on the snow melt and the weather.  At this time, we already know that the via ferrata will not be practicable before May 31st 2021. Do not hesitate to consult this page to follow the evolution of the opening date.
