How to use the via ferrata guide's

Description:

A really nice route it’s graded blue but does have some tough moves in it.

From the parking, you can see the sign for the via ferrata, at the bottom of the main cliff face, from there it winds up to a ledge (you may see rock climbers doing routes on the ledge).   It steps left and gets steeper, taking the main face to a big ledge it is possible to escape right here and follow a path back to the parking.  Staying on the route it gets more strenuous but with lots of staples, it rises up until you reach easier angle slabs to the top.

Descent: head on the path following the signs leftwards, it traverse’s a short way and then zig zags down to the base and a short walk back the parking.
