Important Information - Briefing Session

Pendant Hut Briefing Session for Via Ferrata Climbers

The mandatory pre-activity briefing sessions are conducted daily between 15:00hrs and 16:00hrs in Pendant Hut. A MUST NOT MISS appointment!

During this time, be it if you are a first time via ferrata climber or a veteran mountaineer, you’ll be taken through all the steps from your hike up to the summit, wearing the harness to working the carabiners. While all this is happening, you may make some new found friends who will be joining you in hanging off the side of the mountain the next day!

After the briefing session and filling up some paperwork, it will be time to head off for your buffet dinner and hit the sack! Cos the wake-up call for the summit hike is at 01:30hrs!

Please take note that all guests are required to wear a face mask at Pendant Hut. Guests must bring their own supply and wear them consistently, except when eating, drinking or sleeping.
