Setting up a corporate team building event in Colorado is an important task to take on to ensure you are doing the best for your group and making a lasting impression with your employees. The priority of any good team building event is to get your colleagues out of the office, gaining confidence, and learning important communication skills. That’s why doing a challenging activity like via ferrata is right up the alley of a memorable experience that your whole company will be talking about for years to come.

Via ferrata is an activity that involves a climbing route that employs steel cables, rungs or ladders, fixed to the rock to which the climbers secure themselves to avoid falling. It translates to “the iron way” in Italian. The cable and other fixtures, such as iron rungs, pegs, carved steps, ladders and bridges, provide both footings and handholds. This allows climbing on otherwise dangerous routes without the risks of unprotected scrambling and climbing or the need for technical climbing equipment.
