via ferrata via ferrata


The route of the Via Ferrata Curalla runs in a south-facing limestone bar, dominated by the Aiguille du Varan.
The entire route is a beautiful aerial balcony overlooking the Arve valley with a spectacular backdrop: the Mont Blanc. It consists of various passages with a succession of short climbs more or less vertical and crossed embellished cable bridges and beams.
The via ferrata provides good acclimatization to the height while being entertaining, physical and allows to become familiar with the safety equipment.
