Private and Group Climbs are variable in nature as they are personalized
events. An event can be planned for an individual or a group of 20 or more.

Each event is organized and structured ahead of time with client & tailored to provide a unique event specific to the participants needs and skill level.
The climbing tree(s) is inspected prior to the event for safety. The tree and area are set up and prepared prior to the start of the event. During the climbing component of the event, each participant is suited up, placed on rope by a staff facilitator, given easy-to-follow instructions and overseen until they have started to ascend and tied their first safety knot. Additional climbers are placed on line. Constant communication between climbers and facilitators enables participants to reach their personal goals while they enjoy their time off the ground. Climbers are belayed to the ground when they are ready.

Use a tree on your property: When considering a private climb event in your own tree, we begin with a visit and consultation at your property. All trees must pass our tree health assessment. We provide you with our recommendation of required pruning or preparation. We do not offer pruning services, but can provide you with a list of qualified arborists, should you not already have a relationship with a tree service.
