Head right out of the Flegere cable car station and the route is signposted (green signs) from the noticeboard in front of you. Follow a traversing path for around 20 minutes until a sign directs you off to the right and the start of the via ferrata. The route takes around 90 minutes and involves several named corners and two wire bridges. There are some great, exposed positions, but also loose rock so be aware. The via is possible for children but make sure they are roped as well as wearing via ferrata kit (lanyards aren't designed to activate in low weight falls) and those of shorter reach may struggle on the Himalayan bridge. Harness, via ferrata lanyard and helmet needed. There are two escape points signposted on route, and the descent from the top is clearly marked (20 minutes walk back to Flegere station).

Or continue on to Via Corda Pic Janvier - a great extention. No VF kit required but 50m rope and a few quickdraws will make the route easier. If you don't have these there are places to walk around the hard bits.
