Down The Via Ferrata

This morning I toured the Via Ferrata with Mike Friedman and Neve of Adventure Partners. They are building our Via Ferrata. We drove to the Summit and then hiked to the top of Lenawee Pinnacle (12,937') just south of Lenawee Mountain. Hiking up the ridge, we saw several goats including a couple very cute newborn kids. The pinnacle is the high point of the Via Ferrata. We made a series of rappels down the entire course. The route is stunning. Mike's team has prepared much of path through rock scaling. They have started installing rungs. They will spend the next 6 or 7 weeks finishing their work.

This is going to be cool.
