Thrill-seekers, Utah is calling – because it’s now home to a ‘sky ladder’ that hangs 400ft (122m) above the ground.

Called the Cave Peak Stairway, it has 120 steps and measures 200ft (61m) in length. That’s enough, it’s claimed, to make it the longest walkway of its kind in the Northern Hemisphere.

The stairway has been installed by luxury resort Amangiri and is accessed from its existing Cave Peak Via Ferrata Trail.

Amangiri said in a statement: ‘Guests will now be invited to take to the stairs after completing the Via Ferrata and will be rewarded with an incredible panorama from the top.

‘With an unmatched vertical route of ascent, a spectacular position, and a summit visible from the resort, the Cave Peak Via Ferrata – now with the addition of the stairway – is destined to be an iconic and exhilarating adventure.

‘The installation marks a continuation of Aman’s mission to provide transformative experiences, exclusive to its guests.’

Engineered by Adventure Partners Attractions, LLC – a firm responsible for installing Via Ferrata routes and installations ‘for many of North America’s leading recreational destinations’ – the building process required a helicopter to deliver components to the challenging site, with ‘highly-advanced technical rigging systems’ used to provide access and to install anchors.

Amangiri offers several Via Ferrata climbs. These are routes negotiated with the help of fixed ladders and rungs
