Along with my daughter of fifteen years and a friend we visited this via ferrata at the end of July. Although we tried to converse with the people running the site in French, talking and taking instruction was made much easier by their excellent English language skills.

Beautiful site, at the begining of the Alps. The staff is helpful but instructions and safety advises are minimal. The climb is steap, well done and you can opt-out at different stages. There is 2 bridges and 3 zip lines. The overall take about 2 hours. If you have no rock climbing experience, don't go.
