Title :
Ferrata practice
Date :
Sat 18.09.2021
Type of event :
Klettersteig (Via Ferrata)
Organized by :
Mateusz Żółtak
Description :

Annual ferrata practice. As last year we will go to the ferrata training wall next to the Weichtalhaus. It offers routes of difficulties ranging for A to E/F (topo) so it's suitable both for complete beginners and people trying to test their limits (although the E/F route requires rather strong arms than brilliant technique). Obviously we will also practice absailing, most important knots, etc.

This is not a ferrata course. If you are interested in the proper course, it's organized every spring (see e.g. here). That being said this event is also suitable for people who were never on a ferrata before and would like to see how it looks like in a safe, controlled environment.
