'Via Ferrata' Climbing Path Coming to Central Ohio

It's the first of its kind in the state

Something new is under construction in central Ohio and it's the first of its kind in an urban setting in the United States. It's called a via ferrata, a type of rock climbing path.

“From what we know about them, they're in Colorado, there's even one in West Virginia, but they're in a much more rural setting [that are] more accustomed to having activities like this. Nowhere where it's five miles from 350,000 people,” said Tim Moloney, executive director of the Columbus and Franklin County Metro Parks.
