Off to French Alps and possibly venture further East, but struggling to find an up to date book on the Via Ferrata's available (for my kids to do). If you know a good book you'd recommend .... please go ahead.
Cheers

The books are out of date pretty soon. Most REGIONS do a free Via Ferrata booklet eg Maurienne, Dauphine.

In reply to Scott_vzr: Cheers Scott, I had seen that site and wondered if that was going to be the best bet. Looks like there maybe a new guide coming out in October this year .... seems like an odd release date! May ask friends if they have a copy of the older guides just for guidance.

There is a plethora of Via Ferratas, most not in the guidebooks.

In reply to tetley: I have a French hardback, Randonnees du Vertige that shows some. But if you are thinking primarily of a youngster, the ski resort of Valloire has at least one suitable. Or check out Undiscoveredalps.com which has a section on vf for children on their website. They are based in the Champsaur at the southern end of the Ecrins.
