Located on the crests of the Balcon Est du Vercors, the Pas de la Balme (1839 m) is a vertiginous passage between the Triève and the plateau known as "Quatre-Montagnes"… ! --more--> Passage between the municipalities of Château-Bernard (Triève) and Corrençon-en-Vercors…
Above this step, following the ridge line leading to the Tête des Chaudières (2029 m), you will see a pile of stones: the “Sarrasins Wall”.
According to a legend, it was at the time of the Saracen invasion that this wall was built by the local population… But according to some documents, this heap would be called the “Wall of Protestants”… or perhaps this wall would be linked to pastoral activity… The mystery is full on its origin…
