Exposed Via ferrata climbing on La Balme, Des Vigneaux. July 10 © Simnel

Crag features

Situated above the village of Les Vigneaux the crag offers one of the best and most popular Via Ferrata in France. The climbing is exposed and strenuous and ample sport can be gained from avoiding the fixed gear.
The route starts from the car park sign posted from the Vigneux to Prelles road. The route divides at about half way at a ledge to the more difficult and longer La Balme on the right or the easier Le Colombier route to the left.
