LEVEL: I – Beginners.
Adventure Sports: Ferrata Routes
We start the activity in the car park of the municipal swimming pools, a meeting point at the beginning of the village of Sobrón in Álava, bathed by the waters of the river Ebro.
A village with a tradition of climbing, with reddish limestone rock walls and sporting equipment with a classic style in its climbs, has made a characteristic ridge ideal for the practice of Via Ferrata climbing.
After the introductions, we begin with the distribution of the necessary material for the activity and a 15-minute approach over comfortable, cemented terrain. We will start climbing up the clamps following the steel cable that will be our lifeline during the whole route.
This Via Ferrata increases in difficulty as we advance along the rock ridge. We start with a first section with a difficulty of K2 (not very difficult) and a distance of 50 metres to cover, ideal for warming up the muscles that will work for an hour. After a short break, we increase the difficulty a little to climb a second section catalogued with a difficulty of K3 (somewhat difficult) and a distance of 250 metres to be completed in two more hours of activity.
With beautiful aerial views and a feeling of riding through the clouds, you will feel free. Venture out and come and enjoy this experience.
