During the past few weeks, the Mountain Rescue Service has had to repeatedly help people hiking the ferrata Skalka in Kremnica.
A substantial number of injuries have been reported since the new parts of the ferrata were opened, which range from E to F in difficulty. This makes it the hardest possible ferrata to climb in Slovakia.
The Mountain Rescue Service reported on Facebook that some climbers suffered from injuries caused by falling rocks or by the incorrect usage of climbing equipment. Others were exhausted and could not continue climbing so they called the rescue service to help them down.
