Verdon - The pigeon balm
A swinging jump in the heart of the gorges du Verdon, with a rope and without elastic, big thrills !
13h00 - 17h00
While the via-cordata is an alternative to the via-ferrata, rope jumping is an alternative to the bungee jumping.
The Pigeon Balm is located at the entrance to the Verdon Gorges. To reach it, you will begin by exploring the Samson corridor, narrow corridor surrounded by limestone walls up to 400 m and in which rushes the Verdon. From a small skylight your adventure will begin with an initiation to the rappelling to join the bed of the Verdon.
Following a small climb, the rope installed by your guide will act as a giant swing.
To get there, you will begin by exploring the Sansom corridor, a narrow corridor surrounded by limestone walls up to 400 m and in which blows the current of the Verdon. During the approach you'll be fitted with headlamps through the Tunnel du Baou, long of 670 meters. This tunnel is curved and narrow. A window cut in the rock gives access to the "Baume aux pigeons".
Since this skylight dug into the rock, a rappelling 60 m spider wire will allow you access to the Verdon. Follows a small climbing to the Pigeon Balm to get to the rope jumping.
