We’ll take a telecabine to get us up into the mountains and then hike for around one hour to reach the base of the cliff. Along the way I can share with you the origins and history of this sport. Then for 1-1.5 hours we will be on the rock face, using cables and ladders to help us traverse ledges, squeeze up chimneys and climb overhanging walls. Along the way I’ll share tips on how to use the special equipment and understand its limitations, show you techniques to get rests on the steep ground, and teach you how to make the journey safe so that you can go independently in the future. On the summit we can stop for a brief picnic and enjoy the company of the Alpine Choughs - the mountain birds who will want to share your sandwiches! To finish the day, we will make an equally exciting descent of a mountain path on the other side and then take the telecabine back to the village.
I’ve been a mountaineer for over thirty years and have climbed many high summits in the Himalaya. I’m also a mountain guide and I love sharing outdoor adventures at lower altitudes too. Via Ferrata are an incredible experience that allow complete beginners to feel the thrill of ascending a big rock face. Bring your adventurous spirit and join me for an introduction on how to safely enter this new sport.

Her skal du være
We will be in the mountains above Leysin. The Tour d’Ai has a spectacular limestone face where the via ferrata goes. Although it looks steep and improbable, with a little tuition you will soon experience the thrill of climbing to the top. Its a great location to get into nature and share a challenge with like-minded people. From the summit you can see views across Lake Geneva and all the way to Mont Blanc in France.
