Watch: Is this the world’s hardest via ferrata?

world's toughest via ferrata?

If you’ve never done a via ferrata, you should. It’s basically a mountain route equipped with fixed ladders, cables, and bridges. And these help make them accessible to lots of climbers, hikers, and walkers.

But the Extraplomix via ferrata in Gran Canaria isn’t designed for beginners. It’s graded F (or ‘extremely difficult’), and the video below proves it.

Have you ever tried it? Would you give it a go?
