for the ultimate team experience try tyrolean traverse

Originating in Austria and Northern Italy, a Tyrolean is a way of using ropes to cross big open gaps suspended over obstacles like rivers and valleys. Think of it as a slow motion zipwire; where you can be hauled by your team in both directions back and forth across it. It’s a often used by mountain rescue teams for transporting casualties across gorges and ravines.

For the ultimate team experience you can work together to build it yourselves from scratch under the supervision of our expert instructors; threading ropes, tying knots, attaching pulleys and hauling ropes. Once you’ve built it you’ll have to test it, so hope you’ve done it right! Adding a mountain rescue scenario to the activity can enhance the challenge even further, treating and rescuing a casualty back to base.
