The Jules Carret via ferrata


The "Jules Carret" via ferrata is only 20 minutes away from Chambery, in the heart of the Bauges regional parc.

Its reputation makes it one of the most challenging in France, we recommend it only to experienced ferrata climbers. If it is not your case, you will have to be a well trained and brave sportsman !

Some sections are short but quite physical, you'll love it if you like to pull on your arms !
