What do i need to know about tyrolean traversing?
Whats the aim of the Activity?


The aim of the Tyrolean traverse is to get yourself across a gorge or other open expanse or deep ravine. There are two ropes one over the top of the other, onto the ropes are attached pulleys which are then attached to your harness using karabiners and slings. Using these pulleys you have to get yourself across to the other side either under your own steam or by being pulled by a rope by your other team members

How long should I allow for this experience?


Our half day sessions last for 3 hours from start to finish including setting up and derigging time.

We are available 7 days a week for gorge scrambling, all year round although in winter we wouldn’t do full submersion sessions.

Are there any restrictions?


There are no real restrictions, for individuals with disabilities we will choose a venue to suit your needs and extra staffing can be made available on request.
