Description

High above the town of Thônes in Haute Savoie, the via ferrata de la Roche à l'Agathe offers gorgeous rural views on the Tournette massif. This thrilling route that goes up the cliff of the Roche des Calvaires is perfect for fit adventurers that want a taste of the French Alps paired with a little adrenaline.

This via ferrata route has a South orientation. It is spread in 3 successive sections and involves 255 meters of elevation in ascent and crossing. The path becomes more difficult as it progresses although there are 2 exit routes that allow to shorten the activity if necessary. A physical overhang is the last step of the via ferrata, and there is also an option to climb a more accessible ladder. The descent is carried out with cables on the steepest part.

The program begins and ends at the via ferrata parking lot in the Thônes center, you will need to get there on your own. Once we meet, we will walk for 10 minutes to the starting point, and from there we will enjoy 3 hours of adventure in nature. Keep in mind that you will need a good fitness level to join.
