FIRST DECENT: Mountainbiking a Fixed-Rope Climbing-Route

“There is no place where you feel more alive than when you are facing the absolute opposite of it.”

This whole thing made me really nervous…

VIA FERRATA is a short film about the first descent of a fixed-rope climbing-route on a Mountainbike. Christoph Thoresen filmed my bikeride in the amazing Brenta Dolomites with a drone. Bocchette Alte was not ridden. At Via Ferrata Benini, Vidi and Sentiero Orsi I rode >90% of all the downhill-sections. It was one of the best rides I ever had, especially the run down into the valley when the Via Ferrata was done and the filming was finished. But I honestly don’t want to do this ride again. It’s stupidly dangerous, feels triple as exposed as it looks and there is a lot more uphill-climbing and ladders involved than the video shows.
