    During the walk you can visit the visitors centre (Maison du Salève) in Mikerne by taking the left-hand path before Pomier. This was the Carthusians' old barn. Now it contains exhibitions on aspects of the history of the Salève area and its "firsts" (the invention of rock climbing, famous people who stayed here etc.). You can also step inside its eco-shop and buy a souvenir. A via ferrata called Revacliez lies in the rocks at Pomier and there is no limit on access. Do not use it from February to June, to avoid disturbing the pair of peregrine falcons that nest there.
