Via Ferrata

A Guided Climbing Experience

KMAC does it again! Experience Climbing the KMAC Via Ferrata – an exhilarating way to enjoy the thrill of mountain rock.

Guests, accompanied by KMAC guides, are secured to the pathway system of anchored steel cables as they ascend using natural rock features, ladder- ways, and steel steps. While you ascend, you’ll enjoy stunning vistas of Rocky Mountain National Park, and the surrounding valley typically only reserved for rock climbers!

Via ferrata literally means “Iron Path,” originating from the metal ladders and cables used by the Italian military in WWI to ascend and traverse steep rock and mountain terrain. Via ferrata’s are an extremely popular sport in the European Alps. Now you can experience that thrill here in Colorado!

The Via Ferrata routes offer different levels of challenge and can cover up to 600 feet of vertical climbing.

After lunch on the summit, we descend a lovely hiking and scrambling route down through the gorge back to the base of the rock.

The KMAC Via Ferrata can be enjoyed by individuals, couples, families, and groups young and old. It’s the perfect way to share in a unique climbing adventure.  We can even adjust the level of difficulty based on your adrenaline wishes! Please contact us if party members are below the age of 12. We’ll program your outing to include them.

Half day or full day tours are available. No previous rock climbing experience is necessary to ascend the Via Ferrata. Get this checked off your bucket list now and take the whole family!
