A VERTiCAL WALK
A VERTiCAL WALK

A via ferrata (Italian for “iron path”) is a protected climbing route. The essence of a modern via ferrata is a steel cable that runs along the route and is periodically—every 1 to 10 metres (3 to 30 ft)—fixed to the rock. Using this climbers can secure themselves to the cable, limiting any fall. Thus, via ferratas allow otherwise dangerous routes to be undertaken without the risks associated with unprotected scrambling and climbing or the need for climbing equipment such as ropes. They offer the relatively inexperienced a means of enjoying dramatic positions and accessing difficult peaks, normally the preserve of the serious mountaineer, although, as there is a need for some equipment, a good head for heights and basic technique, the via ferrata can be seen as a distinct step up from ordinary mountain walking.
