Via Ferratas in Andalucia

A via ferrata is a rock route both vertical and horizontal, equipped with a variety of metal material (ie nails, staples, rails, chains, suspension bridges and zip lines) that allow people to safely reach areas strictly within the scope of the high grade rock climber.

Safety is of course a major concern, so we only use full energy absorbing systems and karabiners specially designed for via ferrata. Beginners are welcomed and full instruction given.
