/ Via Ferrata Hire Equipment
Yes but an energy-absorbing lanyard cost next to nothing to buy and just attaches to your climbing harness.
I was under the impression the Petzl Lanyards or similar with crabs were expensive for what they are.
It's not something I'll be doing a lot of as it's just a day out with the family and don't want to buy them if I can hire at a reasonable cost.
Any ideas where I could hire them in Cham?
There are hire shops in many of the villages and towns. Just pop into one of the smaller sports shops and ask. If they don't do it they will know a person who does. Also some of the VF,s will do them.
That's why we hired them when we went to Italy. Try the big shop near the Midi station, forgotten what it's called. They hire gear. I hired bots and crampons for the children from them.
Sorry not very good directions:) It's on the main street directly opposite the station that goes into town.
Snell sports in town hire gear.
I'd be very surprised if they didn't hire VF kits out.
