FAQ

General

Whats the difference between a 1/2 day and a full day

Time! A half day is basically less than 4 hours and a full day is more than 4 hours (times also includes venue setup, pack up and travel)

What is covered in the cost

All the instruction (from a qualified and experienced instructors) and gear. You will need to provide your own transport and food - unless specified

What if the weather is too bad for the activity

If a weather call is made then either a refund or an alternative date can be arranged

Is it safe

Definitely. The entire experience is run and supervised by professional instructors and any equipment used is rigorously tested and designed for the purpose. Although we do everything we can to maximise your safety there is always risk involved with adventure activities and as minor as the real risks may be the perceived risks are inevitably higher

Can I use my own gear

Of course, so long as it meets current industry standards and is fit for purpose

Do you have to be a student to sign up for student trips

Yes. Our focus is in education and we try hard to have trips affordable and accessible for students. Public are welcome to join the trips if there is space but it will cost a bit more.

Rock climbing

Can you run birthday parties

Yes - more information can be found in the private link on this website

Is there an age restriction

Yes, there are a few considerations: 1. Minimum age for belaying is 12 years old 2. People must be able to fit the required safety equipment 3. Generally I wouldn't run sessions for kids less than 8 years old 4. Previous experience may also play a factor

Are there any weight restrictions

All the equipment can hold a minimum of 1.5 tons!! This said, it is the other end of the scale that needs weight for the systems to work. Kids would need to be more than 25kg.

Is it scary

Some people definitely find the experience to be out of their comfort zones! We are not in the business of terrifying people, our goal is to offer positive experiences and work with the ethos of challenge by choice

Is it safe

Definitely. The entire experience is run and supervised by professional instructors and any equipment used is rigorously tested and designed for the purpose. Although we do everything we can to maximise your safety there is always risk involved with adventure activities and as minor as the real risks may be the perceived risks are inevitably higher
