Reopening of via ferrata and climbing walls

May 19, 2020

Following the deconfinement measures proposed by the OFSP and the Federal Council, the climbing sites of our region are open again, as well as the via ferrata of the tower of Aï and Plan Praz (Attention, woodcutting towards the Via Ferrata of Plan Praz - it remains inaccessible until May 26 included).

In our region, nearly 200 outdoor climbing routes as well as 2 via ferrata in Leysin, are once again accessible to the delight of climbing enthusiasts.

The various spots offer fun to everyone, young and old, beginners or experts!

Topographic maps of the region's climbing routes are available for sale in the various sports stores in Aigle and Leysin.

Warning ! Indoor climbing blocks remain closed until further notice. Also, since the ski lifts are closed, access to the Aï tower via ferrata is only possible on foot or by mountain bike.

For more information, please contact the guides office: +41 (0) 24 494 18 46.
