Via ferrata posada de valdeon
Via ferrata of valdeón, picos de europa, león
Due to its length, the difference in height, the demanding route and the spectacular nature of its aerial itinerary in the heart of the Picos de Europa, it is already one of the reference ferratas of the entire Cantabrian coast.
With a complete route of 1,200 meters and an equipped vertical drop of 350 meters, the Via Ferrata de Valdeón begins with a spectacular suspension bridge 35 meters long that crosses the Cares River and leads to a vertical rock wall 100 meters high, a spectacular and demanding stretch given its verticality and length.
Once this wall is overcome, the degree of difficulty is reduced quite a lot as it leads to an area of 130 meters long with a minimum slope, which is the prelude to the second sector of the ferrata, a section of ascent of 60 meters, which is considered as K4, the hardest of the entire route to include several meters of overhang.
For those who want to leave the route of the ferrata without having completed it, between the 1st and 2nd sectors, and the 2nd and 3rd, there is the possibility of doing it through escape routes that descend to the south face.

Via ferrata of valdeon
The via ferrata are sports facilities that make it possible to enjoy the aerial sensations and adrenaline that are experienced in sports such as climbing and mountaineering without the need for great technical knowledge.
The entrance to the route at the base of the Aguja de María del Carmen is made by a spectacular Tibetan bridge, hanging and narrow, 35 meters long, located 30 meters above the Cares River.
From the summit we descend towards the gap that separates us from the Pica del Castro, from where we can leave the route through the second escape zone that joins the first one meters below the climbing area located at the base of the Pica del Castro.
The two intermediate escape zones of the route are also to all intents and purposes via ferrata, and being downhill requires if possible to face them with greater caution and tranquility. In case of making use of them, do it safely, taking extreme care to avoid falling into the void of loose stones, remember that they can also be used by other users to access these intermediate areas.
