Owner description: VIA FERRATA – CLIMBING FOR EVERYONE A unique adrenalin rush and a fantastic adventure in the High Coast World Heritage Site. Here, everyone has the chance to experience mountain climbing under the highest level of safety. No previous climbing experience is necessary, and only normal levels of fitness are required. Steel pegs and footholds have been fixed in place where natural footholds are lacking. Several hundred very strong steel anchor points have been drilled into Skule mountain’s 250 metre high east face and 1300 metres of steel cable have then been pulled through these anchor points, which are divided into four graded routes of varying difficulty. The equipment you hire from us consists of a helmet, a harness and a Y-shaped lanyard with two karabiners suitable for use on a Via Ferrata. You climb the mountain by holding onto the steel cable. Please note, the equipment requires a minimum weight for each climber of 40 kg (6 stone 5 pound) with a maximum weight of 140 kg (22 stone). Both karabiners should remain clipped to the cable whilst climbing, except when passing past an anchor point, when you unclip and re-attach only one karabiner at a time. The routes are not designed for children so this places additional demands on accompanying adults. They should be completely confident with heights, and should look after children they accompany at all times, especially when moving karabiners. For a safe and secure climb, there is a maximum of one child per accompanying adult.

If you want to try real rock climbing in a safe way via ferrata is the way to do it. Skulebergets four trails may not be as good as the best ones in Europe but are still thrilling enough to give you a great experience. A good stop when driving on the E4

I never believed I would venture up the side of a cliff but it was an amazing experience everyone should (and can) enjoy! The views are incredible and the climb just enough of a work out to justify the cold beer afterward! Latte, the fellow who geared us up for the climb was so great and knowledgable. He also lent me his shoes!! Take the gloves he offers and enjoy this amazing experience if you get the chance. It was a highlight for my trip to Sweden.
