Orla Perc - Tatra Terror!
Adventurous visitors to Zakopane and the Tatra mountains will definitely love Orla Perc ridge. It is documented as a via ferrata, but it actually isn't in the true sense as there are no cables to clip into. The ridge itself is best attempted in sections due to the long access walks to the marked routes, however, each segment of it certainly won't disappoint if you enjoy hanging off chains over sheer cliff faces and exposed gullies. Route descriptions are practically non-existent in English so click on this High Peaks page link to find out more detail and images.
