Discover Via Ferrata

The cool Canadian air felt good on my flushed face as I followed a guide with a thick French-Canadian accent up the rock face. Continually clipping and reclipping to metal cable sections separated by anchor bolts, free of the burden of searching for hand- and footholds in the rock, we moved swiftly up the mountain. Like a ladder to the clouds, the metal rungs we stood on were leading us to the summit.

Soon we reached a ledge where we celebrated our accomplishment and took in the view of Charlevoix, Quebec. The hesitant and the confident alike had just conquered this peak on the via ferrata.
