Close to Grenoble, just above the village of Claix on the eastern side of the Vercors, There is the beautiful waterfall of the Pissarde which sweeps the last foothills of the Vercors in a 80m waterfall . The course is a combination of walking in the forest and many short abseils and slides. A refreshing trip !!!!
