In New Zealand, you can now ascend the world’s highest "via ferrata" waterfall climb.
Alongside the Twin Falls, which shoot down a sheer rocky hillside, the ferrata system of rungs and cables rises a near-perpendicular 450m above the valley floor, taking climbers on an adventure that ends with a heli-flight descent.
The route to the top follows a kilometre of cables, weaving over, above and behind the waterfalls, and crosses a 35m Tyrolean traverse using a pulley.
