What you'll do
I'll guide you all the way from start to finish. We'll be hiking, climbing and be thrilled by the experience. You must have no fear of heights though, be aware that is rated K-5 (1 easy - 5 hard). Please do your homework and search some videos "via ferrata san Salvatore" to see if you're up to it. Bare in mind that just renting the safety gear in shops or riding the cable car to the top costs about the same price that I'm offering for the whole activity, so you're actually getting an experienced local guide who will also instruct and provide you with the supplementary equipment needed for self belay in order to make the ascent much safer, plus in case you really get stuck I will be able to get you out of trouble. I can honestly say, based on the experience I have had with guests so far that without my service, most if not every first timer or beginner wouldn't be up to the task. Please send me a message in case you have any further question, you'd like to choose a different starting time or you're past the booking cutoff date, I'll do my best to accomodate your requests.
Don't ruin your chances by missing the right trail, or not using the added safety techniques I'll teach you, take advantage of my experience and advices without wasting time in figuring all out by yourself on the internet. With the right knowledge and techniques anyone REASONABLY FIT can safely enjoy climbing a vertical cliff without having to become a rock climber or mountaneer in first place. And no, you don't need to spend a fortune to hire a licensed alpine guide for a tourist activity like this one, you just need to be sensible in what you do.
