Safety informationK5 on the via ferrata difficulty scale. Use is under your own responsibility and at your own risk. For your first time on this route, it is recommended that you go with a professional mountain guide.
Climbing on a via ferrata involves some risk. If you have not prepared properly, have inadequate equipment or behave incorrectly, there is a risk of falling.

Only set out in settled weather conditions.
If there is a risk of thunderstorms, keep away from ironwork and quickly look for safe shelter at a sufficient distance away from the via ferrata.
Do not cause any rock falls and be considerate towards other climbers.
Check your partner at the start (helmet, climbing harness and energy absorbing lanyard).
Maintain sufficient distances (only one person between two fixed points).
Do not leave the via ferrata and always use the safety rope.
Protect fauna and flora. Take your rubbish away with you.
