As far as caving is concerned, the chourum of the Puits des Bans is a must not to be missed! The most famous, especially in the world of mountaineering, are called the Traversée Héroïque and the Chourum Olympique. Enough to motivate the specialists of sporting challenges!

The Heroic Crossing

How to describe this accessible yet elitist chourum? At the foot of Bure Peak and Corne Valley, the Heroic Crossing is one of the most impressive chourums in the massif. Open your eyes wide unless they are those of the chourum who are looking at you :)!

The Olympic chourum

It lives up to its name! Long and difficult to access, very technical due to its slope in particular, the Olympic Chourum is very popular with experienced climbers. At the exit of the chourum, from the summit of Grand Ferrand, the 360° panorama is like no other.
