Why let the Moor House squirrels have all of the fun running around in the treetops! Let's see just how high you can climb up our giant tree. Can you get all the way to the top?

We have made your job slightly easier by adding some holds but be sure to get a good grip so you don't fall.

There's no need to worry during the climb as you you’ll have a safety harness and our experienced instructors will belay throughout the activity.
