What is a Via Ferrata?

Via ferrate comes from the Italian, vie ferrate, or ‘iron road’.

A via ferrata is a secure, protected, climbing path, where climbers attach themselves to a cable that is fixed to the rock along the route.

Protected paths and climbing routes have been used for centuries. Villages in the Alps used them to connect to each other and to their high pastures. In WWI they were used to help transport troops across steep mountain ranges. They have continued to see use around the world ease travel in rocky mountainous regions and in the modern-day have been adopted by alpine clubs, mountaineers, and avid climbers to explore areas that would have been otherwise inaccessible.

Today, modern via ferrata typically involves a steel cable which runs along the route and is periodically fixed to the rock. Climbers secure themselves to the cable and climb using iron rungs, pegs, bridges, and ladders. This enables those with no climbing experience to reach remote locations and enjoy places and sights that they might not otherwise be able to experience.

Our Story

Wildwire Wanaka had been a dream in the making for owners Mark and Laurel Morrison since 2004. In late 2015 that dream came true; the lower sections – Go Wild and Wild Thing – were opened for business.

Late 2016 saw the completion of the final ascent – Lord of the Rungs – a striking 1000m climb, with 450m of vertical, offering the most remarkable of views.

Today Wildwire Wanaka is the highest waterfall climb on the planet.

Set amongst the natural beauty of the Twin Falls waterfalls, located near Treble Cone Ski Field, Wildwire offers participants a truly unique experience. The falls are located on private land owned by the Ewing Family and is part of a large farm station called Cattle Flat Station. The Ewings have supported this project from the start and because of their support, the ability to admire the beautiful blue pools, grassy plateaus and dramatic canyoning sections are exclusive to Wildwire climbers only.

Hundreds of steel rungs, safety cable and epic wire-bridges have been secured to the canyon walls, enabling you to access this area and enjoy the breathtaking scenery and experience an unforgettable climb.

Wildwire was created by adventurous souls for adventure seekers.
