Description

The route via the Dar waterfall is one of the most physically demanding via ferrata of the Vaudois Alps. Good climbers ask for nothing better than to take up this challenge and admire the Diablerets massif from a unique vantage point: at the foot of the glacier and very close to the waterfall.

To take advantage of the magnificent Alpine setting of the Cascade du Dar Via Ferrata, climbers need to be able to keep their cool, have strong arms and be agile! Climbers access the beginning of the via with a 10-minute walk from Col du Pillon. The very physical beginning of the via requires strong arms, but it can be avoided by taking another route, which has been built specially to bypass this difficult passage. The second part, which is more technical and up in the air, presents more direct contact with the rocks and then leads to the impressive view of the waterfall. The effort turns into contemplation to enjoy this unique vantage point to the full!
