What to expect the day of your climb:
When you arrive, the climbing tree and area will have been inspected and prepared for your climb. At most events, participants are given instructions as a group, fitted into gear and put on rope individually. On occasion, i.e. at festival events, climbers may be given instructions and introduced to the climbing technique individually as they are put on rope by a facilitator.
Each climber receives personal attention and assistance until you have picked up the basic climbing technique and begun to tie your safety knots. The easy-to-follow steps in the climbing technique will have you ascending on your own within minutes!
All climbers are run through same sequence until all ropes have climbers. Those participants waiting to climb will be put on a rope as one becomes available, once the previous climber descends to the ground.
We install numerous ropes in our climbing trees, each rope/route providing unique challenges and experiences. The height of each rope varies, typically between 15 feet and 45 feet. Climbing on your own rope allows you full control of how high you wish to climb during each ascent.
Adventure begins the moment your feet leave the ground. Tree climbing is not necessarily about how how you climb and certainly nothing to do with how fast you climb. It is about connection: with Nature, with yourself.
We limit the capacity of each climb to allow climbers multiple opportunities to climb and try additional routes. Understanding that each person enjoys tree-time in their own way, from sitting or standing on branches, to swinging or climbing as high as possible, a climber's time on rope may vary greatly. Our climbs allow ample time for you to enjoy your time in the tree, your way.
