Going Up

A climber scales the Via Ferrata Regina-Oliana in the province of Lérida, Catalonia. One of Spain’s best ferratas, the Regina-Oliana is long, demanding and spectacular. This type of climbing route, while not without its dangers, is a much more accesible way to experience high-mountain exposure than free climbing. A harness, helmet, and a via ferrata lanyard is all the equipment that’s required, and all of it can be rented for a reasonable fee. If you don’t have experience in this kind of climbing, hire a guide. With professional supervision, ferrata climbing opens up the mountains to anyone who is reasonably fit–though a head for heights is up to you.
