Via Ferrata at Squaw Valley (single-day adventure)Application
Send It on the Via Ferrata and climb the infamous Tram Face of Squaw Valley. The Via Ferrata, which translates to “the iron way”, is a steel cable bolted into a rock face. The permanent attached steel cables are accompanied by steel ladder rungs and steps which we will use to climb. Each participant will wear a harness that attaches to the cable and secures to the rock wall. This ensures that you are connected to the rock 100% of the time. We will be accompanied by guides throughout the whole experience, so no prior rock climbing experience is necessary. This will be a 2.5 hour excursion followed by a picnic lunch at the base of the mountain.
