The Tahoe Via Ferrata has two distinct routes that ascend Tram Face. Routes include cable bridges, metal rungs to aid in climbing, and more traditional rock scrambling sections. Participants can choose between group or private tours, lasting 2 hrs, 3 hrs, and 4 hrs.
A Via Ferrata, which means “Iron Road” in Italian, is a protected hiking and climbing experience. All clients are guided by professionally trained mountain guides and remain safely attached to the rock throughout the experience using permanent steel anchors and cables.
First built over 100 years ago to facilitate foot travel through exposed mountainous terrain across the Alps in Europe, these adventure attractions are now popping up worldwide. Fun for everyone ages ten and up, this is a perfect adventure for outdoor enthusiasts and adventurous people alike. Experiencing a Via Ferrata is an ideal introduction to rock climbing without the pure vertical nature, technical skill, and movement techniques required in traditional rock climbing. Via Ferrata brings hikers to exciting new places.
