Via Ferrata on Funäsdalsberget.

The via ferrata in Funäsdalen starts from the village, up the steep cliffs in this
picture. It ends at the top cabin, with a climb of 300m.  
The trail starts behind the church. It's easy to find parking place near by.

Also easy to find the entrance. Climbing equipment is needed here. It can be
rented in the village. I brought my own gear.
First you climb about 50 altitude meters on a steep path, before the real climb begins. This is the first of three steep sections. It's a bit difficult to get a grip with the feet, otherwise ok.

Even if this climb is concidered family friendly, you should not try it if your'e not
familiar with climbing gear. There are guides in the village.
After each of the first two steep sections you can choose, to continue climbing or to take a normal footpath to the top. It's a good alternative for those who find the climbing hard.


Higher up, you climb under the cableway. It's something extra to look at for those going up that way... I noticed that when I was talking to people up there, who had
seen me climb.
The final steep section reaches the top cabin. 
Going for the final climb. As earlier, arms and hands are used a lot. It's often
difficult to find a good grip for the feet.
At the top cabin, looking to the west towards Norway. I needed 1h 45min up here. 
The high point of the mountain is about 500m from the cabin. It's well worth going here. The mountain in this picture is Ånnfjället 1301m. And here is Helagsfjället 1797m, a bit to the left. That's my goal for tomorrow.
A Swallowtail is flying around at the summit. Even if this one has seen better days,
it's still a nice meeting.
