CIRCUIT´S ACTIVITIES

For us the most important is your safety. We have the following activities prepared for you:

  • Rappelling is a technique used for descents with ropes and a braking system to go down a vertical surface.

  • This is a hanging bridge made up of 3 cables in a triangular shape, and you walk over the central cable and the others are used as handrails, and to hold on to if you fall.

  • This is a pulley suspended from cables and it’s designed to go downhill ,so you can slide down from the top to the bottom.

  • It consists of a pulley suspended by wires mounted on a decline or incline. They are designed to be driven by gravity and slide from the top of the cable to the other end.

  • A Via Ferrata or Iron routes are differentactivities both vertical and horizontal made of different materials, such as hand rails, chains, hanging bridges and ziplines that make it easy and safe to reach areas with difficult access. It is necessary to use permanent anchor systems so that is suitable for people that don’t have rock climbing experience. nstalación permanente, que proporcionan acceso a los que no tienen las habilidades técnicas de escalada en roca.

All of our staff have received high levels of safety training for international standards. Every guide that works for ‘Via Ferrata’ has to undergo a training programme that lasts between 3 and 6 months under the supervision of certified guides.

VERTICAL BUILDERS

Vertical Route with support Vertical builders has developed a series of training programs for adventure guides.

  • Basic course guides rock climbing and rappelling.

  • General course for adventure guides.

  • Building adventure circuits

They are very interesting courses and focus to teach and to properly and safely operate the tours that specifically handles your company or community. In addition the guides learn to properly transmit the information to tourists and to teach them about the importance of protecting nature. The courses are theoretical and practical, comprise several types of exercises. But the idea is to learn 100% to correctly handle the routes and equipment that operate daily.
