A fun way to climb - without experience

What is a Via Ferrata?

Via ferrata, Italian for “iron path”, is a steel cable climbing route affixed to a mountainside. The cable is taut and secured to the mountain face every 3-30 ft.  The first routes were utilized during WWI to move troops around the Dolomites in Italy. Modern via ferratas are popular across the Alps as a safe way to experience high mountain climbing and are gaining popularity around the world.

First in Alaska

Tordrillo Mountain Lodge is happy to present the first via ferrata course in Alaska. Iron rungs, 1,200’ of cable, and suspended bridges between arêtes allows climbers with little to no experience to challenge themselves on Over the course’s 900’ vertical feet of climbing, there are multiple scenic viewpoints to pull off, rest, and take in the huge views across the Triumvirate Glacier to the Tordrillo Mountains. At the top of the route, our helicopter pilot will be waiting to whisk guest back to the lodge where more adventure awaits.

Guests are outfitted with harnesses, climbing shoes, lanyards and helmets and undergo a safety briefing with their guide at the lodge beforehand.
