Come join us on an epic adventure adventure at the Via Ferrata at Red River Gorge! 

What is Via Ferrata?

Via Ferrata is a style of climbing in which the climber is secured to a cable system while traversing a cliff face with the aid of iron hand and foot rungs.  Climbers ascend, traverse, and descend the cliff along the specific path of the cable system. Roughly translated as the "iron way", it was first used in Dolomites, Italy, to transport troops across the mountains during World War I. Now, it is simply used as a fun and unique way to experience mountainous terrain.
