WHAT TO KNOW!

The Cascade Des Nants via ferrata in Bellevaux, Haute Savoie is one of 3 courses above this village. A adventurous and pretty compact course up a gorge criss crossing waterfalls with 7 different types of bridge up its 250m length.

The course is AD and it starts fairly simply but gets more physical and techincal up its length, particularly the canyon section at the end.  It is fairly slippery so bring good shoes.

it is a good taster course for people either wanting to try Via Ferrata with little vertigo issues, or as a a warm up for the other 2 courses here.  Either way, good fun just not particularly memorable.
