Himalayan Training in the Dolomites - Via Ferrata

Hi there folks,
well we've had a great week climbing in the Dolomites! Both Via Ferrata and rock climbing which has been superb. For those who don't know about Via Ferrata it is a great combination of trekking, scrambling and climbing in which you make your way up the mountain clipping into fixed steel cables. Literally translated as 'The Iron Way' - Via Ferrata was originally a way for soldiers to make their way safely up steep mountain terrain in WWI and is now a great way to get up to some superb summits in Europe. You can do Via Ferrata in Italy, Switzerland, France and Austria. Maybe a few other places too.....
Via Ferrata is a superb way to train for your Himalayan Trek, Climb or Ski if you live in Europe that's for sure! For cool videos and pics become a fan on the Sunstone faceboook page!
