The walk is classified on VisoRando as very difficult, and I must agree in general. The main difficulty is climbing a 4-5 meter almost vertical cliff with the help of a chain that is in place here. You need to be an experienced mountain walker with strong hands to handle the chain. But we are a couple aged 67 and 70 years old and we had no problems getting up on our first attempt at this walk in March 2019.
