A Via Ferrata is a way to traverse across and up a cliff face by walking across iron bars that have been inserted into the rock. Via Ferrata is an Italian term that literally means “Iron Road”. Via Ferratas trace back to the 19th century, but they are most famously known for their use in World War I. Several courses were built in the Italian Dolomote mountain region to help move troops through the rocky terrain. Recently recreation enthusiasts heard about these protected climbing paths, and there are now about 1,000 of them worldwide. You have your choice of two courses, one in Idaho Springs at the base of Mount Evans, and one in Granite on the Arkansas River. Most of the climbing involves iron rungs mounted on the cliff, and there is also rappelling for getting down as well as a zip line descent. You will get to cross hanging bridges and do a 50′ free fall with auto-belay. This activity may be an addition to rafting trips on Clear Creek or the Arkansas River.

Trip Option 1 | Mount Evans Via Ferrata


The Iron Way in Idaho Springs is an assisted rock climbing guided tour where guests clip into cables that run along the side of a cliff. They then move along a designated path of iron rungs and bridges to move across, and along the way they will be required to clip in and out of the cable to progress through the course. This is made possible through an advanced internal locking system in the carabiners. Each guest will have two carabiners connected to bungee-style lanyards on their harness. The internal locking system makes it impossible to clip out of both at the same time, insuring that climbers are connected to the cable of the course at all times. This adventure may also be added to a variety of rafting trips on the Clear Creek.
