Via Ferrata climb in Nelson Rock, West Virginia

Nelson Rock Outdoor Adventures, Circleville, WV - Search Nearby - Added by Jennell McHugh

Sensational opportunity for climbing novices to gain serious heights by clipping in and climbing this engineered iron rung trail.

This awesome guided experience starts with a very abrupt ascent until you reach a natural and intimidating rock wall. So begins the clip and climb hike. This first part is actually the most physically taxing. The 3 or so hours that follow are incredible, involving fun brain and footwork on rungs and cables through cliffs, across an ominous bridge, and eventually to reach the summit for beautiful views (especially during fall foliage).
