Via ferrata - Descente aux enfers and Montée au purgatoire

Sports activities, Via Ferrata in Aussois

  • Very nice Via Ferrata intermediate level. The course passes in the majestic Devil's throat, under the Forts de l'Esseillon. Descent by a slope, then majestic up the other side along a waterfall of 100m.

  • It is primarily a nice descent to the bottom of the gorge of the Arc, somewhat difficult, which increases to become athletic just before the impressive Gateway of Hell. The Road to Purgatory then rises in a beautiful wall of quartzite and ends in the magic waters of the waterfall Nant.
