The tall, smooth side of the mountain Trogfjell is very characteristic and the landmark of the town Åmli.
The term Via Ferrata originates from Italian and means iron path. It is a fixed climbing route with iron sprouts that are attached to the rock. You are secured by a steel cable with a special via ferrata set.
