Via Ferrata (Italian for "iron road") is a mountain-climbing method that lets less experienced climbers enjoy the adrenaline rush and spectacular scenery usually reserved for elite climbers. Conceived during World War I, via ferrata allowed Italian soldiers from the flatlands to move quickly through the mountains as they fought the Austrians for higher ground. Today there are over 500 via ferrata climbing routes in Europe, enjoyed by locals and tourists alike, ages 8 to 80. The "iron road" is now available in Utah with the Waterfall Canyon Via Ferrata.
The Waterfall Canyon Via Ferrata training wall and climbing routes are located on private property in Waterfall Canyon.
