Our entire family (ages 18 to 56) loved this experience. Via Ferrata's are relatively rare outside of Europe, and the hike was an incredible way to scale the West Virginian cliffs. Unlike traditional climbing, the Via Ferrata challenges you while providing very clear foot and...More

I have some experience climbing indoor rock walls, which helped during my climb, but probably is not necessary for this climb. Unlike indoor climbing, the views on this climb are truly spectacular, breathtaking, and well-worth the effort. Definitely a great first outdoor climbing experience. *Warning*...More

This was challenging, but not over challenging. You should be in somewhat good physical shape or you will have to go slower and possibly hold up the group. The staff is very good. They are strict on how you need to do things, but not...More
