Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

@Bergmeister, I do recall a good beginners ferrata just above St. Martin. We had to ask directions at a farmhouse on the way to find it and then grounded the car trying to get into the car park. There is also a long ferrata at from the top of the Saluire in Courcheval that I recall taking some friends on as their first ferrata, but the walk down when we missed the return lift was a killer (I don't do downhill walking very well). However the best beginners ferrrata in that area is the Cascade at Pralognan-la-Vanoise. It climbs the side a (you've guessed) at waterfall then traverses over the waterfall on an two cable bridge. The scenery around there is pretty good as well.

Remember to take some sturdy gloves, however, if you do try it

I've never used gloves on a via ferrata and never had any problems

Another vote for Austria. Just stunning and amazing for kids. Salzburgerland is a great choice and value if you purchase the salzbugerland card.We have been the past 4 yrs, twice to Salzburgerland.

I’ve looked at some videos and don’t think I could do it- I’m pretty sure I’ve sustained a rotator cuff tear in my shoulder early in lockdown (playing rugby with the kids- I knew there was a reason I gave it up 30 years ago!) so I can’t do a “pull up” movement. I’m guessing you need to be able to do that even on the simplest routes?

@Doccam, climbing at an entry level is all about using your feet so I think you would probably cope.

@Doccam, Even to a very high level climbing is done almost entirely on the legs. See this video as an example
http://youtube.com/v/OuTOnNwLUbk the route is a hard severe, which is a bit trickier than the beginner routes. I know climbers who can climb into the extreme class (which I cannot) who cannot do a chin up. Flexibility is more important than strength

If you get a chance try roc du vent via ferrata. We do it every year and it never loses its magic.

Agreed. It's like climbing a ladder - it's about putting your centre of balance over one foot, pushing up with you leg muscles, and just using your hands to hold on with and keep your balance, not pull you up.

@ringingmaster, I can confirm it is a beautiful ferrata. All I can add is remember to bring a torch with you for the tunnel.

^^^Fingerless gloves (eg mountain biking type with heavy duty-ish palms) are best - so that you can easily operate the carabiners to clip/unclip to/from the cable.
