WARNING: this isn't (just) a hike and SPECIAL EQUIPMENT is MANDATORY!!!

Dear mountaineers,

Let's climb another K4-level via ferrata located in Engelberg.

Via ferrata, or 'iron path', is a protected climbing route, where steel cable runs along the route and is fixed to the rock. You need special equipment to be able to do it (you can rent it if you don't want to buy).

If you are a beginner you have to be in a very good physical/psychological condition and being able to climb various ladders fixed on the vertical rock - see pictures and description in the link below.

We meet at the Protected content at 9:00. After 30 min walk-in we will climb for 3 hours Protected content up, level Protected content . After lunch break at the mountain restaurant we walk down to the station (approx. 1.5-2 hours). Please only join if you want to be the part of the group. This is social activity and we will stay together.

Mandatory equipment:

- Climbing harness (belt)
- 'Klettersteig' climbing set (see the picture) - with break!!
- Helmet
- Gloves for climbing
- Hiking boots - not climbing shoes

This is not a guided tour. If you are not sure that you can do it (but you want to try) please book the official course first.

Really thrilled to do this together!

Yours,
Lena
