The Rise of the Via Ferrata in the U.S.

September 12, 2023

AFAR highlights Feed Media client Tordrillo Mountain Lodge and their impressive Via Ferrata.

“Alaska’s very first via ferrata was completed in 2019 by the owners of Tordrillo Mountain Lodge and features a network of metal rungs, 1,200 feet of cable, and two suspension bridges, which all together help guests gain 900 feet of elevation. Throughout the course, climbers can see the 28-mile-long Triumvirate Glacier, with all its moraines and otherworldly blue crevasses, as well as the Tordrillo Mountains, which includes Mount Spurr, an active volcano that last erupted in 1992.”
