The second equipped via ferrata in Navarre, ideal for beginners.
The Via Ferrata, better known as a ferrata, is an itinerary equipped with various elements of progression: chains, nails, staples, steps, handrails, suspension bridges and zip lines, which allow safe access to places that are not very accessible for climbers who are not used to climbing.
To secure the progression in a simple way, a steel cable is installed along the route and a harness with an energy dissipater and special via ferrata carabiners are used to stop and absorb the impact in the event of a fall.
The origin of the via ferrata is considered to date back to 1843 in Austria, with the equipping of the route to the Hoher Daschein peak with the sole purpose of making it more accessible. But it was not until 1903, when the western edge of La Marmolada in the Dolomites was equipped, that the via ferrata was considered as such.
World War I saw the proliferation of wartime via ferratas, whose sole purpose was to move the army. Today they are used by thousands of mountaineers to enjoy the beautiful landscapes that the mountains offer us.
