The Cave Peak aerial stairway at Amangiri is one of the greatest thrills in North America.
Nestled on 243 hectares of protected valley, Amangiri already had sweeping views over the untamed Utah wilderness. But now guests can see it all from a different, albeit terrifying perspective.
The luxury hotel has just installed a hire-wire staircase that rises 122m above the ground. Well-suited to thrill-seekers, The Cave Peak Stairway is exclusive to Amangiri guests.
The metal staircase, which opened in April is the longest climb of its kind in North America.
Are you brave enough?
The momentous 61m long metal construction takes guests up 120 thin metal steps from Cave Peak. Look around, or between them, and you will have expansive views of the rugged Utah Desert.
The Cave Peak aerial stairway experience really is for adrenaline junkies. To get to the starting point, Amangiri guests must first complete one of the luxury hotel’s via Ferrata courses.
Via Ferrata, Italian for “Iron Way”, is a rock climbing route that uses steel cables, rungs or ladders fixed to the rock. Climbers must traverse the course using a harness and two leashes.
Amangiri’s via Ferrata to the Cave Peak stairway takes about three hours to complete.
Amangiri is a five-star luxury resort in remote Southern Utah. Guests have easy access to Bryce Canyon, Zion, Arches and the Grand Staircase- Escalante National Parks.
One night at Amangiri costs around $4500.
