BEFORE YOU START
• Read carefully any specific information concerning the Via Ferrata
• Wear a safety helmet
• Wear a climbing harness and a double safety sling made of climbing rope. This safety sling must be equipped with large karabiners with automatic locks and shock absorbers. If a climber falls whilst on a vertical cable, the whiplash effect creates considerable energy representing several tonnes and therefore presents great danger!
• For your safety, do not hesitate in taking a qualified mountain guide with you.
• Always check weather conditions and take into account the forecast.
• Take a drink and a snack with you

DURING THE CLIMB
• Veillez à ne pas faire tomber de pierres.
