Via Ferrata is a traditional European mountaineering activity and Italian for “Iron Way”. It is a fixed-protection climbing path without the risks associated with unprotected scrambling and climbing. Via Ferrata is a traditional European mountaineering activity, reputed to have been started in Italy in WW1 as a means of letting the Italian troops cross the Dolomites. Since then, many other via ferrata routes have sprung up around Europe, allowing hikers and mountaineers to ascend peaks in total safety.
The Via Ferrata course at Orchard Central is the highest indoor via ferrata course in the world! The course is designed with multiple courses of varying difficulty. This allows climbers to choose a via ferrata route that will let them challenge their skills, allowing them to also cross their own personal borders. Once you conquer this you can try the course on the top of Mount Kinabalu in Sabah!

Those not interested in climbing can give moral support at the café which is just below the Wall. We will also have dinner after to round off the Sunday. Please register using the form below. See you there!
