Telluride’s Via Ferrata is a favorite climbing spot for locals and visitors. Located at the end of the valley in Telluride, the Via Ferrata offers views of the town of Telluride and Bridal Veil Falls from high above on the cliff walls.

The climbing route requires a climbing harness and dynamic Via Ferrata lanyard, as well as some climbing knowledge. The climb starts as an exposed hike, then transitions into a traverse on fixed steel rungs while tethered to cables. At times, the cliff wall drops hundreds of feet below your feet.
