You will have fun as long as you feel safe. No matter if you’re on Walk the Torq or Low’s Peak Circuit, three things you simply must have: harness, helmet and via ferrata set.
Mountain Torq utilizes the best of the best CE Mark-approved materials coupled with well qualified guides that posses high-level training, this carries the certificate of Conformity from the French Agency of Tourist Engineering (AFIT). With a team constructed of preeminent Via Ferrata builders from Europe, rest assured all safety measures are being thought through and sought after.
The Via Ferrata is able to withstand up to a minimum of 3,000 kilogram of weight at any one point.
All the Via Ferrata Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) comprising safety helmets, harnesses, dynamic ropes and Energy Absorber Lanyards are all certified by the International Climbing and Mountaineering Federation (UIAA) which meets the EN958 standard.
All of the Mountain Torq Via Ferrata trainers are trained based on safety practices endorsed by UIAA (International Climbing and Mountaineering Federation); and are certified in Via Ferrata guiding by UIAGM / IFMGA certified instructors.
They have undergone rigorous training with regular skills upgrading based on the UIAA-endorsed syllabus. They are also certified with First Responder Life Support (FRLS) and CPR skills. All Mountain Torq guides and trainers communicate to the Pendant Hut Base, Kinabalu Park Rangers and Sabah Park headquarters via VHF radio at all times when they are on the Via Ferrata.
Safety practices developed and prescribed by UIAA (the International Climbing and Mountaineering Federation) for mountaineering sports are adhered to strictly. A continuous belay system is employed throughout the Via Ferrata route wherein climbers are always hooked up to a guideline, making any deviation from the route virtually impossible.
