Climbing The Via Ferrata in Peille, France

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. πŸ˜‰

A Via Ferrata is a climbing route that comes with fixed ropes, ladders, pitons, and bridges already in place. The term literally means β€œiron 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.
