Via ferrata of the Devil - Path of the Virgin

Via ferrata chemin de la vierge at Aussois - Auvergne rhone alpes tourisme tristan shu
  • Via ferrata du Diable Chemin de la vierge à Avrieux - MO. Russ Schleipman- OT AUSSOIS

New ! Direct access by a pedestrian footbridge (follow the signs) from the parking of the Redoute Marie-Thérèse.


The descent of the visitation is a downward crossing of rather difficult level (2 wooden footbridges) with alternating rocky passages and paths which ends with an original ladder (20 meters of descent facing the view on the gorge). 100 meters of path leads to the Assumption jump. The last step presents a short athletic passage and above all a splendid and impressive final crossing above the Nant waterfall. To finish, the footbridge of the Virgin crosses the stream elegantly.
