Don't get stuck in the Storm

With the global warming, you have certainly noticed the storms are becoming more and more violent. In the mountain, this is more and more epic.

When you climb a via ferrata and a storm is coming, well.. this is not fun especially if lightnings pop up all over the place.  There is a small chance that the lightning touches the cable, but it is still possible.

To avoid it, check the weather forecast. When you climb a via, the goals are to have fun and to come back!

before winter arrives!  After a very warm summer, it is the time to enjoy the automn and climb a last via ferrata in the high mountain.

It is an opportunity to stay in a Caban before they close. A suggestion?
