Via Ferrata de la cascade de La Fare – Vaujany
On the slopes of the Grandes Rousses massif, this via ferrata starts at the edge of the magnificent La Fare waterfall. The route is made up of several sections that can be climbed separately, and is suitable for beginners aged 14 and over, as well as more experienced climbers.
The waterfall (difficulty D+)
This aerial route follows the mythical Cascade de la Fare through vertical but physically accessible passages.
An escape route allows you to avoid the second section of the via ferrata and return down to La Villette.
The footbridges (difficulty D)
This is an easier route, winding its way along the wooded slopes of the rock face before crossing two large footbridges.
These footbridges overlook the talweg and provide access to a more vertical wall to join the “La Cascade” route.
Access to/from the Via Ferrata from La Villette :
Start car park – alt 1325m
Drop – 118m
Access time – 40mn
Return from the summit 1715m – 1h30

Climbing in Vaujany
Vaujany is one of the Isère’s leading centres for vertical climbing in a magnificent setting. A few years ago, it equipped no fewer than 12 climbing routes along the La Fare waterfall. In other words, it’s a complete site that caters for all levels of climber, from 2 to 6a. In the same spirit and in all humility, the most experienced climbers meet families here, all aware of the extraordinary heritage of such well-preserved sites.
