    Via Ferrata: la Tour du Jallouvre
    From 07/07 to 07/11.
    Opening based on snow conditions, and you are entirely responsible for your own safety. Closed when covered in snow.

    Subject to favorable weather.

    After a 20 to 30 minute approach from the parking lot, start up the first section by traversing a series of ledges up and left, over good quality rock, that lead to “Arche du Bouquetin” (Ibex Arch), just prior to the crux of the route. Climb up and over the slightly overhanging crux via a series of small steps, which require moves similar to climbing. This overhanging section is called the “Cul Tourné”, French for “turning your rear end around”. After a section over rock, then another easy section, traverse directly towards “La Tour” (TheTower). You can stop here, and start your descent via the “Sortie à Fred” (Fred’s Exit), by walking along an easy ledge, and then down a few steps to the descent trail. Reach the tower via a 16 m long hanging footbridge (the “Passeralle du Gypaète” or “Bearded Vulture footbridge”, there are bearded vultures in the area). Enjoy the exposure when crossing the footbridge and then start climbing up the impressive pillar overhead. A long traverse across the rocky face followed by another hanging footbridge will be an exciting experience to say the least. One more easy section up a beautiful arête and you’ve reach the top of the tower. The descent starts via a long traverse across Jalouvre’s upper face until you reach a steep couloir equipped with cables, bringing you to Col du Rasoir pass and a well used hiking trail. (Often snow here at the beginning of the season). DIFFICULTY: this route is fairly long and committing, especially once beyond the hanging footbridge. The descent can also be more challenging at the beginning of the season when there may still be snow. TECHNICAL INFORMATION : Approach walk: 20 to 30 min. Exposure: South-West Length : 1100 m Vertical drop Via Ferrata : 450 m Altitude of Via Ferrata summit : 2000 m Alfifude departure Via Ferrata : 1550 m Total height difference: 590 m Total climbing time : 5 to 6 h (ascent + descent) / (in French) Fred's outing - Time: 2 to 3 hours. Difficulty: 1st part to "la Sortie à Fred": AD by the "passage à Coco", D+ by the passage "le Sortie à Fred". D+ by the passage "le Devers du Cul tourné", 2nd part: D+. Two other via ferrta in the area are of interest: - The “Yves Pollet-Villard” via ferrata in La Clusaz, just off of the road that leads to Col des Aravis pass. Difficulty: D -The “Roche à l’Agathe” (Agatha’s Rock) in Thônes, just outside the village center. Difficulty: D and TD
