The High Elements of our Challenge Ropes Course consist of a series of obstacles which occur 20-40 feet above the ground. Experienced and skilled facilitators belay individuals and teams through each of the five elements as each participant attempts to tackle their own comfort level.
Safety is maintained through the employment of technical climbing belay systems. High elements include:
- Leap of Faith
- Pipe Dream
- Climbing Wall
- Balance Beam
- Zip Line – Unavailable for the 2014 season
Although these activities were quite a bit more challenging, they were great too because they challenged us beyond our comfort zone allowing us to create a ‘new normal’. I still don’t know how Brian and I made it across your Pipe Dream!
What in the world is a “belay” system?
To participate in any of the High Elements of our Challenge Ropes Course, you will be connected to one of our experienced facilitators who will be “on belay” while you are climbing. As you conquer each of the five High Ropes elements, you will be protected by a rope attached to your harness.
The other end of the ropes is held by the facilitator, who is known as the “belayer”. The belayer runs the rope through a “belay device” that is attached to his or her own harness and feeds the rope out as you climb higher. Using a belay system enables the belayer to hold the entire weight of the climber with just a small amount of force and can easily catch or lower a climber who needs assistance.
Half Day: High Elements (3 Hours)
Spend an exhilarating three hours rotating through the four different high elements of our Challenge Ropes Course. Skilled facilitators will be stationed at each element, allowing participants to rotate through at their own leisure. As a challenge by choice course, participants are welcome to ‘opt out’ of any elements that they find personally intimidating.Book Now
