About Via Ferrata

To ensure a safe and enjoyable experience on the via ferrata, activity trainers at Mountain Torq will recommend a suitable route based on your fitness level. As with all outdoor sports, there are safety issues to watch out for. The exposure, altitude and challenges associated with a mountain environment will always be there so do take note of the following:

  • The basic safety rule of via ferrata is to use the self-protection system. This means to ensure that at least one of your carabiners is always clipped onto the main cable, which serves as a lifeline.
  • Wear comfortable sports/hiking shoes and check your equipment before leaving (helmet, harness, lanyard etc, provided by Mountain Torq).
  • Always make sure you bring warm clothing, some snacks and water.
  • Start out early so that you will have more time to enjoy the scenery along the way.
