So I have never been on a via ferrata in my life, and now I've done two routes within about as many weeks! I made a return visit to Mount Norquay and checked out the Ridgewalker tour, which was of course fabulous, however I did find it to be much more mellow than the Summiteer. If you are unsure if you would like an adventure such as this, I would suggest trying the Ridgewalker as a great introduction to the whole climbing experience. The exposure is minimal, there is only one major feature to tackle, plus it is an amazing way to spend a day and meet some really cool people.

The panorama from high up on Norquay is stunning, scaling the Rockies limestone is super fun, and the entire set-up in general is incredibly well done. The Mount Norquay Via Ferrata is one activity that I would highly recommend, if you are looking for something unique to do while visiting the Bow Valley!
