Via Ferrata 

1st part
The first part lets you learn how to use the lanyards as it has intermediary anchor points for extra security.
Fairy difficult - total length: 100m - 1 5m ladder - 1 8m hanging bridge.

2nd part
As you follow the small path you meet up with the second part which is characterized by horizontal progression over a series of ledges.
Easy - total length: 80m - 1 5m footbridge.

3rd part
When you are about to reach the 3rd part, the 2nd part gives you the option of an easier variant which goes up sideways on a little ramp at the end of the footbridge.
Before crossing the footbridge you can go directly to the 3rd part via a short overhanging climb and a horizontal traverse of a very steep section under the overhangs, and then by crossing a depression on a 15m rope bridge (2 cables).

There is a small 20m zipline at the end of the via ferrata (a pulley is mandatory).
Difficult - total length: 90m - 1 12m rope bridge - 1 20 zipline - 1 5m rope bridge.


Way back
