Rick, over at the Best Hike Blog, posted this cool video from the Via Ferrata in Peille, France, proving he’s more of a climber/mountaineer than he likes to let on. 😉
A Via Ferrata is a climbing route that comes with fixed ropes, ladders, pitons, and bridges already in place. The term literally means “iron road” in Italian, and the technique is used to link up routes that might not otherwise be accessible to climbers as a single climb. You’ll see what I mean in the video. Cool stuff.
