A sports via ferrata "à la française", running through the drops on the north side of the Tête aux Chamois: numerous extremely exposed traverses, and in between these shorter vertical passages. Essentially, it follows a series of natural ledges, comfortably wide in places, but often narrowing until just wide enough to take a foot; the traverse of the "Rocher Jaune" is guaranteed to set your hair standing on end. An unusual feature is that you climb down to the start, and from the finish you climb up to the cable-car. The via ferrata extends over about 800 metres.

There is an interesting hike leading visitors from Les Diablerets aerial cable car station (designed by Mario Botta) to the legendary "Quille du Diable", a rock shaped like a giant thumb that stands out from amongst the Valaisan Alps.

This walk through the mountains is unique, taking you through several different types of countryside.
