Enjoy doing an iron road at Sierra de Guara!
An iron road is also a vertical and horizontal road. Equipmented with diverse material: nails, staples, holds, handrails, chains, suspension bridges and zip lines …. That allows the acces to difficult zones.
Security is provided by a steel wire installed throughout the road. You must wear a harness equipped with an special Via Ferrata iron cruiser and carabiners that secure in the event of a fall. This activity is a good way to climb large walls.

The itinerary quickly goes into a narrow path that will be the main place where the road develops. Technically it is more an climbing route than a iron road. Once the route is finished, the road is a little exposed to the height and we advance only with the help of the safety wire. In the final part of this section, verticality increases. The route ends by going up a slippery floor equipped with staples to the Olvena viewpoint.
You can start or perfect your technique with or without the help of guides and take advantage of a day in the heart of nature.
The iron road can be combined with the descent of one of the many canyons that run through the Park of the Sierra and Canyons of Guara. Perfect for the hot summer months!
