From Worst to Best!
This is a short via ferrata course that has 10 minutes of really enjoy enjoyment, and 30 minutes of boredom.
Total Score 4/12
This is a unique course along the side of the rocky outcrop above the town of Noiraigue. A fully sideway course, it is has a few cool moments, but most of it is simply a narrow ledge.
Total Score 5/12
This is a new Via Ferrata designed for beginners with some 'best of' bits, which makes it feel a bit fake. Some nice moments, but nothing that amazing.
This is a long course in a spectacular alpine location that doesn't really get you overly excited, good technical training but no real 'wow' moments.
This is a good fun course up a waterfall / gorge, that will entertain you with lots of elements. Nothing vertiginous, but satisfying!
Total Score 6/12
If I was rating just the first part of this course, it would be much higher up in the list. This via ferrata starts fantastic but becomes a bit of a slog for the 2nd and 3rd section.
It's a great course, just a bit simple and straight forward. Amazing views and location, but very basic.
Total Score 7/12
A lot of variety, and some challenging parts make this overall an enjoyable challenge.
Personally this was a tough course for me, but it is spectacular. Great views, loads of variety and a bonus section before the start.
3 cool sections and some real points of wow, nice views and a satisfying course design. This is a real pleasure to climb.
Total Score 8/12
This is probably the most spectacular location of any course, and this makes it really cool to climb. But its just a little bit fragmented to be truly amazing.
This is a really satisfying course with well designed route and the climbing up the gorge from the river is really spectacular. It's easy but fun!
This is the most enjoyable starter course there is. Amazing views, brilliant design and intuitive climbing. Top!

The best vertigo via ferrata there is! 2 moments of true awesomeness will be what you remember, the rest of the course is a little less amazing.
This is a wonderfully designed course with really fun sensation up the side of the rock face. Some comment that it has too many holds, but I really loved the course!
Total Score 10/12
The best summit of any via ferrata! And a really enjoyable (but fairly short) climb up the side of this epic rock face.
A wonderful course, full of challenge and instinct. Really well designed and fairly laid out to push you up the side and enjoy the amazing views and the fantastic summit!
