Via Ferrata a new Big Business - Your thoughts!

ImageA new Businness Via Ferrata trend start to emerge from the free world of via ferrata.

All over the world, 99% of the via ferrata are free of charge. Some business persons discovered the Via Ferrata boom and they saw a fantastic way of making money. When you enter in these new via ferrata, you can not use your own via ferrata gear anymore, you have to rent them in "All inclusive entrance fees package".

Usually the price are Euro 20 (US$ 25-30) per person.

Owner pretend it is for safety reasons!

Others claim this is  the way some business persons find to make tons of money. When climbers can not use their own gear for safety reason, it is a creative way to "steal consumers"!  Traditionally a Via Ferrata sling line cost about (Euro 80 - US$ 120).
