The Lakes, England
Your experience starts with a 300m trek to the base of Raven Crag. You’ll need your helmet on as you begin your scramble to the summit. The next gruelling trek takes you to the Devil’s Quarry where a 150ft abseil awaits…will you dare to look down?
The thrills keep on coming when you reach the bottom and realise that the next challenge is throw yourself from opposite quarry into the freezing cold water below. Swimming to the other side you’ll need to keep moving to keep your body temperature up. Up next is the tunnel, it’s pitch black and it’s wise to hold onto the person in front as you wade through the water towards the light.
The next treks will take your breath away! Ever looked at a fast flowing gyhll full of boulders and thought “Yeah, I could run up that?” well, that’s exactly what you’ll do now. The water’s icy and the rocks are slippery – can you handle it?
I hope you’ve saved some energy, you’ll have to pull yourself along this Cliffhanger-style Tyrolean traverse before you can earn your Go Wild medal!
Come on, FIND YOUR WILD
If you decide to join us for a 2 day experience, you’ll also get to camp in the wild, cook your own meals and brace yourself for day 2. You’ll tackle another 10km trek, a whopping abseil and a challenging Tyrolean traverse.
One Day Event £95 + vat
Two Day event (including camping) £195 + vat
If heights are your thing then The Descent locations are for you. The abseils here range from forward facing waterfall descents to 150ft quarry walls. They’re not for the faint-hearted; when you’re at the top looking down, it will take all the bravery you can muster to get you over that ledge. Up for it?
You need a head for heights and water to be able to tackle the activities here. You’ll be standing right on the edge of a 25-30ft waterfall, with only white water beneath you. Can you take the leap and go with the flow to the other side?
There are some serious hills to climb in these locations. Feel your quads burning as you ascend the rough terrain to summit some awesome UK mountains. You’ll be rock climbing with and without a rope, so you need to watch your footing. You’ll cover around 10k on the 1 day experience, and around 20k on the 2 day experience. Can your legs handle it?
Fancy flying through the trees from cliff to cliff or tree to tree? With nothing but a huge drop and leafy scenery below, you’ll be harnessed to a wire that allows you to zip through the air at speed, hundreds of feet above the ground. Will you dare to look down?
Fancy yourself as a bit of an explorer? You may need your torch if you can’t handle the dark in the waterfilled tunnel. Keep your head down and keep moving. If the tunnel isn’t enough for you, there’s a storm drain to crawl through, it’s a very tight space so I hope you can handle it. Are you brave enough?
