Via Ferrata:

[/fusion_title][fusion_text columns=”” column_min_width=”” column_spacing=”” rule_style=”default” rule_size=”” rule_color=”” class=”” id=””]

Via Ferrata means iron path in Italian. Via Ferrata first came into existence in the Alps region to create safe paths for soldiers to cross vertical walls.

These climbing routes are protected by steel cables, steel steps, and anchors. The concept of these steel cables is for climbers to secure themselves using specific Via Ferrata gear as they climb.

Like any other sport, via Ferrata routes are defined by their grades, which are determined by the length, steepness and other variables.

I do it cause I can blog will feature Via Ferrata routes around the world.

Why Via Ferrata?

If you don’t want to venture into the rock climbing world, but you want to see the world from up above, Via Ferrata is a great option. It requires an average level of fitness and some level of commitment. Unlike climbing, you can go on a great adventure with a guide even if you have no experience and gear.
