The essence of a modern via ferrata is a steel cable which runs along the route and is periodically (every 1 to 10 meters (3.3 to 32.8 ft) fixed to the rock. Using a via ferrata kit, climbers can secure themselves to the cable. The cable can also be used as aid to climbing, and additional climbing aids, such as iron rungs (stemples), pegs, plus all the required ziplining equipment for the 3 short ziplines in the route.
