Via Ferrata: The Iron Way

It’s hard to describe the thrill of the cable “hike” along the cliff under Mürren and over the Lauterbrunnen Valley. I hope these photos help take you there.

My friend Olle on a stroll along a cliff, 3,000 feet above the valley floor

I wouldn’t do this without a good guide

I was so scared, I barely looked down

Just climb the ladder

Finding a platform BASE jumpers use as their takeoff point

Reaching the end of the 1.25-mile cable

Having survived our little personal test, we were both very exhilarated
