I’ve just had the chance to check out one of the most recent via ferrata in France.? It proclaims itself to also be the longest; in total 1700m of via ferrata!? The via ferrata is on the north face of the St Julian, a long limestone crest of rock overlooking the village of Buis-les-Baronnies in the Drome-Provencale.
The main via ferrata is in three sections: “La Testourisasso”, “La Roumpo Quieu” and “La Tihousso”.? There’s also a via ferrata for beginners or the more nervous, “La Pitchouno”.
The footpath leading to the via ferrata is reached in about 5 mins by vehicle from the centre of the village of Buis-les-Baronnies.
