Via Corda

Excuse me, what's the difference between a via ferrata and a via corda?

  • The equipment and the technique for moving forwards are identical.
  • A via corda climbing route is equipped with ropes rather than cables (i.e. it is a non-permanent path), and the route is less fitted out than a via ferrata.
  • Climbing a via corda is also nearer to rock-climbing, providing a closer contact with the rock as well as abseiling experiences (belayed by an instructor) that you will not get from a via ferrata.

La Cazelle offers two circuits, a half-day circuit in Sainte Enimie and a full-day one in Florac.

You will need to bring:

Light clothes.
Supple shoes (trainers) or hiking shoes
Water: at least 1 litre per person
For the full-day circuit, a picnic.
A small backpack (for one or two people).

Equipment we will provide:

All the technical gear is provided by La Cazelle.
