NELSON ROCKS PRESERVE
No experience? No problem! Rock climbing in beautiful Pendleton County.
A via ferrata (Italian for "iron way") is a type of mountain climbing route with a safety system permanently installed, making the climb suitable for persons with no prior training and minimal equipment. The climber is attached at all times to a steel cable which runs along the entire route; no climbing rope is generally required. Steel rungs, ladders, bridges and similar structures are used to keep the climbing from becoming too difficult, while providing access to high, vertical faces and extreme mountain terrain which would otherwise be accessible only to experienced, roped climbing parties.
