via ferrata du Roc de cornillon au col du Chat, à coté d'Aix-les-bains, via ferrata proche de Genève lyon et Annecy


The Via ferrata in Cornillon & Primevère in Oreille d'Ours is near to Lyon and Chambéry, which is undoubtedly one of our favorite via ferrata in the discovery level.

It’s adventages are having an exceptional view of Bourget Lake, the largest lake of glacial origin in France, and people can be surprised by the aerial surroundings which is not difficult to walk physically and no varied apparatus.

Perfect for having a sensational climb without pain! The most physical part is the approach walk of only 20 minutes from the "Col du Chat"(cat mountain pass) car park.

This Via ferrata is made up of 2 parts and they are inter-link

  • The first part is Primevère à oreille d'ours (name of a spring flower), which is a large crossing on the cliff, beams and easy climbing can chain along.
  • The second part is Roc de Cornillon, which is slightly more aerial, monkey bridges, walkways, and funny rock climbing.

We recommend combining this half day activity with the Terneze canyon which is located only 30 minutes from the Bauges massif.

We often do this route with 8 year old children. In this case, we can start with the second part because it is less difficult than the first part. After they get used to the height and technique, they can proceed to the first part without worries !

In order, we will have:

  • The Gournechon beam
  • The Benoite beam
  • The Prism beam
  • The beam in the wind
  • Bourget repose (succession of wooden boards)
  • The Tube inverted ladder
  • The passage of the cave with its 2 beams
  • The beam between the two
  • The spanning beam
  • The Cornillon monkey bridge

All of these are interspersed with climbing the ladder rungs and crossing the suspended wooden boards!
