The tree you’ll be climbing is 131 feet (40 m) tall and is located just 5 minutes from the initial meeting point. You have three options for how to ascend the tree, and two options for making your descent. No matter which route you choose, you’ll wear a comfortable safety harness.
Climb up the middle of the tree, ascend the metal bars on the exterior, or simply haul yourself up one of the dangling ropes — this last option is best left to the fit! When you’re ready to come down, you can descend through the hollow tree, or rappel down the outside. Rappelling is an exhilarating way to end your experience, but it does take a little bravery. You can do it!
