Come venture along and try this unique Granite Via Ferrata course in Buena Vista! You’ll take two ziplines to the starting point of this adventure, then traverse high above the Arkansas River Valley along the granite cliffside. Rappel down a rock face, ascend crags, and cross multiple suspended bridges on the Granite Via Ferrata. The 3-hour excursion is built at the base of the 14,000+ foot Collegiate Peaks and will have your heart pumping as you explore among the mountaintops in the beautiful Colorado Rockies.
Via Ferrata in Italian means 'iron road ' and traces back to the 19th century, most famously known for their presence in World War I. It is a method that combines mountaineering and rock climbing, using a combination of ladders, rungs, rails, cables and bridges to aid in moving across and up a cliff face.
This is an assisted rock climbing guided tour where 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 connected to the cable of the course at all times.
