Via ferrata of Saint Christophe en Oisans – Section 2

Here is a "hike ferrata" to do as of six years. Its original route has been improved in 2018 in order to create some "loopholes" allowing accessibility for the smaller ones.

About : Via ferrata of Saint Christophe en Oisans – Section 2

This relatively easy route follows the mountaion line in the Vierge du Collet area.

Time : 1h30
Difficulty : PD
Start : 1385 m
Heigh gain : 160 m
Orientation : South-West
Equipment can be hired at the white water base in Plan du Lac.

For the return journey from the Collet statue, allow about fifteen minutes: take the path that goes down to the village, a few minutes from the finish you will cross the Diable torrent and be able to admire the renovated mill.

For the more experienced, there is a via ferrata starting from Plan du Lac and finishing at Le Banchet or Le Collet. This section is much more aerial and sporty.
