General Ferrata Course Programme

We’ll begin by climbing a simple, short via ferrata, suitable for beginners, where you can learn how to use your ferrata equipment and pick up the fundamentals for this sort of route.

This first easy ferrata is a chance to get used to the altitude and exposure and use your arms and legs in the most efficient way. A common mistake made by many beginners in via Ferrata is exerting excessive force by “pulling” on the rope, resulting in the unnecessary expenditure of a significant amount of energy.
Positioning feet correctly on rocks and gaining sensitivity and trust in one’s shoes on the rocks even on small rocky surfaces (next step) is thus of primary importance.

At the same time, you will start getting used to the height and exposed positions as well as the basic knots and use of Ferrata equipment.

After this, we will move straight on to a new Ferrata. Which Ferrata it is will depend on your abilities and preferences.

After completing the first day via Ferrata course, the following day will be dedicated entirely to climbing via Ferrata. The specific route will be determined collaboratively with the participants, taking into account their abilities and the prevailing weather conditions.
