From Nelson Rock’s website: “Our Via¬†Ferrata tethers allow for at least one connection at all times. Climbers are connected to steel cables while using the steel rungs and/or rock face to traverse, ascend, or descend the route.”DSC00080 DSC00082 DSC00089 DSC00086

There was a bridge connecting the two rock walls…DSC00095 DSC00096

At the end, we were given the option of doing an additional 100 ft climb (we had already done 200ft) to scale the Head Wall…
