Via Ferrata Course - Mt. Evans

Operated By: AVA Rafting

Activity Description

The Mount Evans Via Ferrata is one of AVA’s newer extreme adventures, sitting at the base of a beautiful 14,000+ foot peak in the Colorado Rockies. A Via Ferrata, which means “iron way” in Italian, is a method of mountaineering & 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 guests clip into cables that run along the side of a cliff. They then move along a designated path of iron rungs and bridges to move across, and along the way, they 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. Each guest will have 2 carabiners connected to bungee-style lanyards on their harness. The internal locking system makes it impossible to clip out of both at the same time, ensuring that climbers are connected to the cable of the course at all times.
