WHAT TO KNOW!

This is a pretty underwhelming via ferrata near to Geneva on the side of Mt Saleve.  There is a steep 15 minute walk up to the start of the Via. 
Then, the majority of the course is a chained walk along the cliffside with a few moments of scrambling but nothing too difficult.
The last 10 minutes of the via ferrata is the highlight a cliff side climb above a large void with a tricky moment over overhang as you climb.  But just as you find your rhythm, the via ferrata is over. 
Only worth going if in the Geneva area, and worth combining in a day with Fort l'Ecluse.
