One of our most challenging High Ropes elements. Pupils muster all their confidence and courage to climb to the top of a 10 metre pole, before counting to three and putting their faith in themselves as they jump and reach to catch the mid-air suspended trapeze. A great activity for our challenge by choice ethos, where young people can safely take risks and learn from them – pupils are gently encouraged and supported by our qualified Instructors to push their own boundaries as far as they wish, whether that is only a few steps up the pole, half way or all the way to the top and then the leap. Climbers are supported by a helmet, harness and belay rope to ensure at any point they can safely be lowered to the ground.
