The Via-Tyro Annecy is a private Via Ferrata with here and there, beautiful views to breathe and admire.
A 3 and a half hour tour, alternating hiking, via ferrata, monkey bridge and several zip lines all equipped by guides Monté Médio and reserved for you to progress at your own pace.
Departure from the Forclaz pass above Lake Annecy.
Meet your guide at the Pré Vérel refuge, on the road to the Col de l'Aulp (45 minutes from Annecy).
At the refuge, he equips you with via ferrata equipment: a harness equipped with via ferrata lanyards and a pulley, a helmet and gloves.
You first have to walk a little to get to the start of the via ferrata.
Your guide will brief you on safety instructions and progression techniques in via ferrata, then you will follow him.
The course begins with a warm-up alternating paths suspended above the cliffs and short fairly easy climbing passages. Which is perfect for warming up before arriving in a beautiful cave.
To pass the cave you will have to climb inside and exit through a hole ... When leaving the cave you will have to climb an overhang, where you will have to force with your arms! If this is too hard for you, you can bypass this passage. But don't be afraid to give it a try, the guide can always give you a hand to get over the overhang.
A little further, you will have to breathe deeply before putting your feet and your hands on the monkey bridge: two cables stretched between the cliffs at fifty meters high…
The via ferrata continues with a last part of climbing before arriving at a beautiful point of view on the surrounding mountains. Then comes the zip line! Attach the pulley to the cable and let it slide ...
A beautiful forest path then takes you to the viewpoint over the lake. A short break is needed to enjoy the scenery and then we descend.
A few minutes later, you will arrive at the start of the zip lines which will allow you to descend to the starting point while filling up on sensations.
The route lasts approximately 3 and a half hours during which your guide stays by your side to help and guide you. If you never have the courage to go through one of the dizzying workshops, the guide can get you around it by taking a path so that you can continue the route with the rest of the group ...
