Planning is the key to safe and enjoyable tours in vie ferrate. Inform yourself in detail on difficulty and length, ascent and descent, weather and conditions.
If you choose difficulties which demand too much this may dampen the experience and lead to dangerous situations.
Climbing belt, via ferrata set and helmet: only a consistent and correct application of the equipment enables you to safely climb fixed rope routes. For emergencies, take first aid kits and your mobile phone with you (euro-emergency hotline 112).
Lightning poses a life-threatening danger. Rain, wet and cold increase the risk of slipping and falling.
Falling rocks, snow pressure, frost wedging or corrosion may cause damages at the fixed-aid climbs. Do not enter closed vie ferrate.
Mutually check: belt latch, connection of via ferrata set and climbing belt, helmet.
Only one person each may be between two anchors.
Communication and thoughtfulness prevent dangerous situations when overtaking and in case of oncoming people.
Walking and climbing carefully prevents rock falls.
Use public transport or a car pool to get to your point of departure. Do not litter and avoid unnecessary noise.
