yes, it has a steel rope and you can use two strings with carabineers like via ferrata if you want, but my friend prefer to cross without it. The traverse is short and a lot of people cross it whitout anything but the fall is very impressive and it's not a bad idea the use of carabineers.
"So I was sitting in my cubicle today, and I realized, ever since I started working, every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it. So that means that every single day that you see me, that's on the worst day of my life."
