Sasso di Castalda is a village perched around a rocky cliff and, with its characteristic stone houses, historic churches and chapels, its green areas, pastures and wheat fields, it falls within the protected area of ​​the National Park. of the Lucanian Apennines Val D'Agri, one of the youngest Italian national parks. In 2017, two paid "tourist" bridges were completed and inaugurated in Sasso di Castalda, 95 and 300 meters long, currently managed by a local company and two via ferratas open to the public, with attached Tibetan bridges, with free access. The via ferratas are short, not very difficult and easily linked, a stone's throw from the center of the characteristic village. For those who are passionate about geology or simply love the shapes of the rock, walking the via ferratas or the alleys of Sasso di Castalda is like taking a journey through the geological peculiarities of this stone village.
After a briefing on safety equipment and technique, a UIAGM Mountain Guide, the only figure qualified to provide professional accompaniment in the natural environment, will accompany and assist you on the via ferratas.

Via ferratas are the most natural passage between trekking and climbing. Cables, steps, bridges and other artificial elements made on a wall, facilitate the ascent but on the more demanding via ferratas and less impact on the environment, the artificial elements are reduced to a minimum and a good climbing technique is also needed . It is rare that the via ferratas require mountaineering skills, but, in addition to the correct use of protective equipment, there may be difficulties due to the length of the route, the muscular commitment, the verticality and the exposure, i.e. the ability to tolerate the void under of oneself ... therefore IT IS FORBIDDEN TO SUFFER FROM VERTIGOS !!!

After a briefing on materials and technique, an Alpine Guide, the only qualified professional accompaniment on via ferrata, will guide you along these itineraries suspended between rocky walls and sharp ridges.

I promote climbing, multipitch, via ferrata, mountaineering and ski mountaineering courses and outings with Campania Mountain Guides.

I am the author of the guide Malopasso, Climbing in Campania and I manage the Mountain Pro S.r.l. which deals with consulting, design, construction and maintenance of via ferratas and climbing itineraries. I have been climbing since I was a child and I like to understand climbing and outdoor disciplines as a lifestyle, an excuse to travel and get to know other places in depth: from the villages of the Amalfi Coast to the 4000m peaks of the Alps.

The passion for the mountains, for my land and the work of a guide have led me over the years to discover and enhance most of Campania's climbing sites and to open about 1000 climbing routes including single pitch, multipitch and classic routes. I work with enthusiasm, more and more aware that I do the best job in the world in the most beautiful places in the world!
