What’s a Via Ferrata?

It is a well-equipped track that allows you to move “easily” and safely through cliff walls using metal stairs, rack bridges, monkey bridges, zip lines and more, that helps move forward, while making scrolling more fun and spectacular. The Via Ferrata is also equipped with a cable that allows us to be secured throughout the whole track to prevent falls. We must be sure that we know the security principles in the Via Ferrata paths. If you do not know how to use the specific equipment for this activity and safety coefficients to prevent falls and other dangers, you may want to hire the services of a qualified guide who, in addition to the necessary equipment, provides you with security, as well as provide the necessary permits and insurance.

Difficulty of the ferrata tracks.

A scale has been established from K1 (The easiest ferrata route) to K6 (the most difficult ferrata route). The ferrata tracks near Madrid have a difficult between K2 and K4. The K4 ferrata tracks that are close to Madrid, all have an easier option (K2 or K3) in the vicinity: to warm up, or if any children come with us.

Material necessary to make the ferrata routes around Madrid.

From a safety point of view, to progress via ferrata you have to carry the following material:

Harness,  via ferrata lanyards with a tearing energy-absorption system ending in two carabiners (marked “K”), and helmet. In some cases you have to carry a pulley (if the track has a zip line). It could be that a via ferrata has a rappel at some point in the course, in which case we would carry a rope and a descent.

It may be convenient to carry a rope and descent, as a safety measure to be able to quickly leave the circuit. (Changes in weather, tiredness, etc.)

It is recommended to go with mountain clothes and shoes with good grip, adapted to the time of year, and to the weather forecasts. Depending on the lenght of the via ferrata, we may have to bring food, water, a headlamp … But all the vias ferratas described above can be done in between 2 and 3 hours, it would only need a little water in summer or a lamp if we enter in the afternoon in winter.
