Via Ferratta, Zermatt, Switzerland
Saturday July 14th, 2012

We headed out from Zermatt to catch the gondola at about 10:30 am. It took about 20 minutes to reach the Furi station on the gondola and from there it is a short walk to the start of the Via Feratta in the gorge.

We walked down a short distance into the gorge and then stopped to put our harnesses on and get clipped in to the cables.

The entire route along the Via Feratta took about two and a half hours to complete. The following movie show a typical view of the gorge and the path that we followed along it's cliff walls.

There were also a few zip lines along the gorge. They were short but quite interesting. Here is a video of one of the longer ones.
