Via Ferrata de la Roche au Dade

With its 70 m of zip line (ladders, monkey bridge and Nepalese bridge...), the Via Ferrata de la Roche au Dade guarantees you 1 h 30 to 2 h of dizzying sensations for a final touch at 918 m altitude over the Morézien basin.

Three routes are available: fun, initial and an athletic variant for the more athletic:

- Initial or "classic" itinerary: classified as fairly difficult, it allows you to reach the Roche au Dade lookout, the summit of the via ferrata.

- Athletic variant: classified as difficult, the vertical start is physical, an ascending zip line requiring you to pull yourself up on the second half of the route allows you to join the classic route (pulley on short lanyard obligatory for this route)

- Fun course: itinerary remaining on the bottom of the via ferrata with a horizontal ladder, a Nepalese bridge and a long footbridge allowing you to join the final 70-metre zip line (optional), itinerary suitable for children.

The via is free and open to the public, weather permitting.

The site is forbidden to inexperienced people and to minors not accompanied by an experienced adult. Do not enter the via ferrata in stormy weather or at night.

Free access or accompanied by professionals by appointment.

Minimum height recommended for access to the via ferrata: 1m20
