For whom is the ferrata suitable?

Ferrata climbing is only for experienced ferratists equipped with the proper ferrata equipment. Inexperienced climbers can only do the ferrata while accompanied by an experienced ferratist, who, however, bears personal responsibility for them during the climb. Unaccompanied persons under the age of 15 are not allowed on the ferrata. The ferrata includes sections that can be hazardous for people under 15 and inexperienced individuals.

Mandatory equipment

Mandatory equipment for the ferrata consists of a climbing helmet, seated harness (ferrata seat), chest harness, lanyard – a flat unsewn loop, and a ferrata brake. Gloves, dynamic rope and, most importantly, high-quality sturdy shoes are recommended. If you do not have ferrata equipment, you can use the rental shop at Ferrata Route C in the Bistro Garage. The rental shop is open seasonally: May – June always Thursday and Friday / July – August every day / September – October again Thursday and Friday. In the off-season it can be arranged by phone.

Ferrata with instructor

If you are new to ferrata climbing, you can book an instructor who will walk you through and teach you the dos and don’ts of safe climbing. The climbing instructor is available by prior telephone or e-mail appointment. Contact: Hana Benešová, UIMLA mountain guide, tel. +420 724 510 310, info@zivothorskepruvodkyne.cz
