Tour description provided by Viator

Climb ladders and steps and conquer the mountain! Romsdalsstigen Via Ferrata Westwall is a real challenge, in some of worlds most spectacular scenery. Designed for experienced adventures the Westwall route is our most advanced via ferrata climb. The view as you go are simply stunning, the photo opportunities incredible and the rush of adrenaline you get from facing your fears and go through them anyway, is nothing short of fantastic!  Reasonable fitness and ability required. The climb takes on average 5-6 hrs return, where you will be guided by professional and secured to the mountain by cable throughout. Upon reaching the peak of the Nesaksla mountain, you hike via the scenic photoplatform "Rampestreken", before returning to the Norwegian mountaineering centre. Rise to the challenge! 
The climb is graded level D on the international via ferrata scale, which means you have to overcome several exposed rock faces, overhangs and exposed high wire brigdes. For some, this will be the best thing they ever have done, others might wish the heart did not race quite as much! Expect loads of fun, an amazing adventure and incredible scenery along the way. You will be briefed on safety and via ferrata systems before you start by your guide. Be prepared for walking up and down trails that are steep in sections. On the via ferrata, you will be climbing ladder rungs, rock and boarded walkways. You will be required to clip and unclip your via ferrata lanyard along the way. On the trek out, your feet will be mainly on uneven steep ground, with lots of tree roots that may be slippery, especially on wet days.   Minimum age: 16 yrsMin/max weight: 40-120 kg.
