Via ferrata means “iron way” or “iron path” in Italian, a nod to the sturdy iron rungs, ladders, and cables anchored into the rock face to simplify mountaineering.
The great thing about via ferratas is that you will be able to participate in this activity if you're a first-timer or an experienced climber. You will have an added sense of safety when climbing as you will be attached by a harness, which allows you to attach yourself to the metal fixtures, which prevents a fall.
The cable and other fixtures, such as iron rungs-stemples, pegs, carved steps, ladders, and bridges provide handholds and footings. This allows an individual to climb routes that would otherwise be considered dangerous without the risks of unprotected climbing and scrambling or the need for technical climbing equipment.
Via Ferratas vary in length from short routes that can take less than an hour to longer routes that are more demanding routes. If you can climb a ladder, you can enjoy a Via Ferrata. You will also enjoy the most beautiful views, and an energizing burst of adrenaline that will have your heart rate pumping.
Participating in a Via Ferrata provides you with an unforgettable experience as you rappel off the very cliff you just ascended. Via Ferratas offers a new sensation that can only be fully appreciated by experiencing. Contact Roam to book your unforgettable adventure today.
