A CLIMBING centre plans to open a unique indoor attraction to lure more adrenaline-seekers.

They are working on plans for an indoor via ferrata, a first for the UK, which involves steel rungs and ladders for climbers, complete with a zip wire descent. It would represent a year-round wet-weather climbing activity in a county where rock climbing can often be weather dependent. This will be a fantastic, unique and adventurous activity for locals, tourists and climbers to use and will, once again, generate increased visitors.

There are similar indoor via ferratas in Europe which are popular with professional climbers wanting to avoid bad weather or test themselves ahead of trips to places like Switzerland, where there are as many as 50 outdoor via ferrata. There are many high ropes courses in the UK but not an indoor via ferrata.
