Trippin’ | Climbing Whistler’s Via Ferrata

I’m no rock-climber, but when you scale a via ferrata you don’t need to be. What you do need to be is willing to face your fear of heights. I climbed one with Whistler Guides the other weekend (read my recap on Vitamin Daily riiiiiiiight here.) and although this route wasn’t quite as terrifying as the via ferrata I climbed in the Rockies last summer, it seriously tested my resolve to reach the peak without taking the chairlift.

Boy, does it make you feel hardcore. See that pole falling sticking out of my backpack in the photo above? That’s an ice axe.

P.S. You know what else I had in my backpack? My tweet machine so follow The Anthology on Facebook and @TheAnthology.

    Surprisingly it wasn’t cold at all! It’s quite a workout so you work up a serious sweat.
