Via Ferrata near Àger
It is actually 2 linked ferratas reaching at its end to the magnificient Pertusa chapel in a bluff over the Canellas Reservoir in the Montsec hills, near Àger, in Lleida province.
An approach by the side of the promontory, completely way down leaves us at the foot of the Teletubbies ferrata.
Funny via ferrata in which there are a variety of elements such as climbing holds with animal shapes; staples, steps, string, rope, even a classic ladder that makes a very pleasant trip.
Remarkable also combining spectacular progression by a very exposed ridge with little separation between staples that make it affordable even for the youngest. (Let us know if you want to try it with children).
The fact that the Teletubbies and Olmo-Soler ferrata are oriented to the west, becomes a great reason to visit it during the afternoon to contemplate the sunset. A sunset at the silent Montsec will be a nice experience and of course, the arrival at the scenic spot in the chapel of Pertusa, a nice finishing touch.
