The via ferrata is an itinerary marked by a cable anchored to the wall called the life-line, where we will be anchored at all times for both vertical and horizontal routes. To facilitate this progression we will have the help of steps, handrails, staples, dams, zip lines and other elements.
Participants will go at all times with a helmet and harness where there will be an energy dissipater with 2 carabiners at each end to have at least 1 of them anchored to the lifeline in order to eliminate the risk of falling.
Although it may seem like a very safe activity, it is not so safe. For this reason, at Activitats Cerdanya we prioritise your safety and we string you along and show you how to progress in order to avoid any participant falling from anchor to anchor, which can be several metres long and could cause us serious injuries. This limits us to a ratio of 5-6 participants per guide, but for us safety is the most important thing.
