Crate Stacking


Crate Stacking requires, teamwork, coordination, balance and communication to make it to the top of the tower. Participants work together to feed the stack builder with crates to build a tower as high as possible.

The stack builder, wearing a harness with safety rope attached are given the challenge of building a crate tower as high as they can whilst at the same time balancing on top of the wobbling structure.

Our qualified instructors belay the stack builder ensuring they are lowered to the ground safely.
