Today I finally visited Europa’s biggest Via Ferrata centre. It is actually in my “neighbourhood” so to speak, but I have been living in the area for almost a year just “waiting for a suitable day” – well, I guess it is too easy to think that what’s in your backyard can wait. So wait no more.
This spring/summer I have spent 3 months back in Norway mostly to work, but managed to do a quick family visit and also squeezed in time to hike, climb and bicycle – of course. I also visited 2 Via Ferrata centers in Norway (Via Ferrata Loen and the new Romsdalsstigen), so I will try to update my blog about that and all my outdoor adventures as soon as I am back in my daily routines again, as right now everything seems to happen at once 😉
So then my latest activity back in Sweden again is todays Via Ferrata climb at Höga Kusten (High Coast) – and the red route was far better I actually expected, nicely varied and exposed. And if you have never done via ferrata solo, you will (as I did today) have to find your own way to get pass cruxes without any encouragement from others. My fear of heights was present at times indeed, but I managed to control it pretty fine thank’s to frequent height exposures back home in Norway.
