Via Ferrata of the Canal del Palomo in Huesca - dam of Vadiello
Come and discover the Canal del Palomo in the Natural Park of the Sierra and Canyons of Guara, making this spectacular via ferrata!
The Canal del Palomo is a vertical rocky path that owes its name to the old pigeon hunt that was carried out on it.
The via ferrata is located in the hamlet of Vadiello, belonging to the municipal territory of Loporzano, 23km from Huesca (Zaragoza: 98km). The path is located right next to the dam of Vadiello where the road ends. To access it you will have to park in a sharp curve to the right where you will find an esplanade and abandoned facilities. The canal is 2 minutes from the car park and next to it you will be able to see a waterfall, normally dry, covered with vegetation.
The Canal del Palomo is a vertical itinerary in most sections and is equipped, mainly, with pegs and a stainless steel cable in the areas of greatest difficulty. Along the channel you will find pools of water where the pyrenean triton lives, a protected species and in danger of extinction, so it's forbidden to step on them. At the end of the channel we will find the spectacular Cirque of the Nests of Ligüerri, with its walls full of nests of birds of prey (like vultures), so climbing is regulated by nesting. If you are lucky you may also see some mountain goat.
The descent can be done in rappel through the canal with a rope or walking along the safety cable that will take us through a natural balcony and a couple of sections with pegs to the parking area.
The activity will be directed by a guide who will advise and explain you the curiosities of the place along the route. The difficulty of the path is technical level.
Take advantage and come to know this mythical via ferrata!
