This tour sits at the base of a beautiful 14,000+ foot peak in the Colorado Rockies. Via Ferrata is a method of mountaineering & rock climbing that use a combination of ladders, rungs, rails, cables and bridges to aid in moving across and up a cliff face. Guests clip into cables that run along the side of a cliff. They then move along a designated path of iron rungs and bridges to move across, and along the way they will be required to clip in and out of the cable to progress through the course. This is made possible through an advanced internal locking system in the carabiners. Each guest will have 2 carabiners connected to bungee-style lanyards on their harness. The internal locking system makes it impossible to clip out of both at the same time, insuring that climbers are always connected to the cable. This trip is typically available between March 1 - December 5.
