Schmooling - think ice climbing without the ice. Our purpose-built climbing tower provides the perfect setting. Your challenge is to ascend the 20’ or 40’ tower using modified climbing axes and hold loops.
After an initial safety briefing, participants will be given an in-depth introduction to the equipment they will be using during the session. Participants will then receive demonstration before moving on to the activity where they will be instructed throughout.
