All Aboard is a team climbing activity where 4 participants climb onto a platform 6 metres up in the air, this may not seem difficult as rope ladders are provided but the platform at the top is very small!
It is important to work as a team in order to make progress. This activity is one of our most physical and involves an amount of strength, flexibility and agility.
The rest of the team are involved in holding the ropes and offering encouragement and help. The climbers can be lowered to the ground at any time. Not everyone gets to the platform (or stays on it for long!) but everyone enjoys trying!
