Telluride’s Via Ferrata has evolved from underground status to a hugely popular and well-used route. Even if some of its sections seem more like an exposed hiking trail than a rock climb, make no mistake, this climbing route requires technical climbing abilities and gear. An accident on this route could easily have fatal consequences, and even a sprained ankle can quickly become a serious event and potentially a major rescue. If you have any doubts about your abilities, please hire a local guide to take you for a more enjoyable (and less stressful) experience.
