Via-Ferrata

Via-ferrata de St Christophe en Oisans
The Via Ferrata in St Christophe looks out over the Vénéon gorge whose waters come from the glacial cirque at La Pilatte giving them their incredible turquoise hue.
The route is continuously interesting, visually stunning and physically demanding.
The via-ferrata is made up of two sections and starts from the Plan du Lac at the white-water sports base.
