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.
Jesús Olvera and his team lead these routes for us. They are local experts and indeed prepared most of these via ferratas themselves.
Includes: Certified Andalucian Guides, RC insurance, rescue insurance, helmet, harness, specialised via ferrata (high security) equipment. Photographic record of the climb.
Participants should bring: running shoes or hiking boots and comfortable clothes.
Dates - September to June
Accommodation - from €30 per person per night (sharing)
