Overview

If you can climb a ladder, you can climb the Mount Ogden Via Ferrata! You're always attached to the safety cable. No ropes or knots required. Via Ferrata (Italian for "iron road") is a mountain-climbing method that lets less experienced climbers enjoy views and adrenaline rush usually reserved for elite climbers. Conceived during World War I, via ferrata allowed Italian soldiers from the flatlands to move quickly through the mountains as they fought the Austrians for higher ground. Today there are over 500 via ferrata climbing routes in Europe, enjoyed by locals and tourists alike, ages 8 to 80. The "iron road" is now available in Utah with the Mount Ogden Via Ferrata.

I would recommend this adventure to everyone. My family and I were treated to a great time by our guide Colten. We enjoyed the day and came away with a better understanding of our weaknesses, our fears and most importantly our strengths.

My son and I had an amazing time hiking with Colten. We went up route 1 and our guide taught us how to climb without using the ferrata holds.

Took a few co-workers to Ogden as a team-building exercise and we had a blast. Even those with little rock climbing experience enjoyed the day. Our guide Chris was entertaining, patient, and provided some great healthy snacks. We're already planning on returning later this year.
