Jacob’s Ladder is a giant swinging ladder of 6-inch beams reaching 10 metres high.
Participants attempt to climb as high up the ladder as possible. 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.
As the team climbs higher the challenge increases. 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 top but everyone enjoys trying!
