Via Ferrata is a short film from pro mountain biker Harald Philipp. Filmmaker Christoph Thoresen filmed Philipp's first descent of a fixed-rope climbing route on a mountain bike in the Brenta Dolomites with a drone. Philipp said it was one of the best rides of his life, but “I honestly don't want to do this ride again. It's stupidly dangerous, feels triple as exposed as it looks and there is a lot more uphill climbing and ladders involved than the video shows.”
