This climbing route along the cliff of Roc du Cornillon offers a breathtaking view of Lac du Bourget (Lake Bourget) and Dent du Chat (cat's tooth) mountain.
The via-ferrata of Roc du Cornillon is ideal for an introduction to verticality and is accessible to all (from 8 years). With breathtaking views, you can enjoy the 40 meters of empty with a varied and fun course of about 2 hours.
You'll meet your instructor at Col du Chat where he'll give you the equipment and brief you on the activity and safety rules. Then, you'll walk for about 30 min. to join the departure of the via-ferrata. You will pass by the compact paving stones of the southern face. An uninterrupted succession of small crossings and mountain ledges will softly take you back to one of the Belvedere of Roc du Cornillon that offers a 160° view of the lake. You'll then walk 20 min. back to the Col du Chat.
