  • Via Ferrata (Italian for “iron road”) is a mountain‐climbing method that lets less experienced climbers enjoy views and adrenaline rushes usually reserved for elite climbers.  Conceived during World War I, via ferrata allowed Italian soldiers from the flatlands to move quickly through the mountains as they fought the Austrians for higher ground. Today there are over 500 via ferrata climbing routes in Europe, enjoyed by locals and tourists alike. The “iron road” is now available in central Colorado with the Captain Zipline Via Ferrata.
  • Located on the north‐facing and south‐facing limestone cliffs that surround the Canyon Adventure Course are four (4) via ferrata routes consisting of a series of traverses and climbs protected by flexible life lines and anchors. Climbers use special fall protection lanyards designed specifically for via ferrata and are assisted by stainless steel rungs, bolts, and ladders.
