A Via Ferrata, which means “iron way” in Italian, is a method of mountaineering and rock climbing that’s been used in Europe for centuries. Via Ferrata courses use a combination of ladders, rungs, rails, cables and bridges to aid in moving across and up a cliff face. The Iron Way in Idaho Springs is an assisted rock climbing guided tour where you follow a designated path of iron rungs and bridges, and along the way you 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, insuring that all climbers are connected to the cable of the course at all times.
In order to receive the free activity, reservations must be made through Xplorie.
