BARRED OWL COURSE

Like the wise barred owl, this course is characterized by a slower, more cerebral experience in physical problem-solving. Your guide dynamically belays you through four traditional challenge elements for a climb that becomes progressively more difficult. Set new goals and be fully present as you swoop, owl-like, to a height of 25 feet in the company of your peers and the lofty canopy of trees. The ultimate practice of communication and teamwork, this course offers elements designed to challenge you with a progression of difficulty. Your experience includes a combination of the Cat Walk (walk across a 20-foot beam, 25-feet in the air), Islands in the Sky (a series of platforms progressively spaced apart, ending at 30-feet high and 30-feet long), Multi-Vine Traverse (walk on a foot cable using progressively spaced hanging ropes, 40-feet high and 35-feet long), and Postman’s Walk (two-line cable footbridge with supporting rope). 105 MIN | $150

GIANT'S LADDER

This element is a true test of communication and teamwork – it is almost impossible to complete alone. A 35-foot ladder is strung between two trees and requires two guests to help each other move from level to level while on a dynamic belay. The higher you climb, the more difficult the task becomes, as the rungs of the ladder get further and further apart, requiring heightened collaboration and focused communication. 105 MIN

Lean and rely on each other for support as you move, hand-to-hand, along the element. The element widens as you progress to the point of a horizontal body position. This is a trust and communication experience that will challenge you to think about how to communicate positively with yourself and your peers. 105 MIN
