The Via Corda (or Via Cordata) is a cliff adventure route. The progression is usually horizontal in the middle of the wall, on a ledge (natural terrace) and roped.

The Via Cordata du Hourat

In the heart of the Ossau Valley, the Via Cordata du Hourat is located at the exit of Laruns and overlooks the Hourat gorges, in a lush and aquatic atmosphere, 10 to 20 m above the gave d'Ossau.
There is a very aerial climbing crossing of 80m, a fun and rugged trail to the highlight of the course: 2 magnificent monkey bridges of nearly 20m.
Wild and unusual, this spot offers sensations similar to those provided by climbing.
Support by professionals highly recommended.
