Sitting alongside the high ropes course is our Wheelchair Abseil Ramp. This is essentially a smaller slope with a more gradual incline that is suitable for wheelchair users to try abseiling.
We have larger harnesses that will fit around both the participant and the wheelchair to secure them together and on to the ropes.
We then have a simple pulley to hoist the wheelchair up the abseils slope.
Upon arriving at the top of the slope we can then secure them, switch over to the abseil ropes, then lower off down the slope.
Assisted Tandem Abseil
This can be for anyone who is either nervous about heights or you just think will require that extra assistance and reassurance on our high ropes abseil tower. Physically going down with an instructor can be the difference in whether or not someone can complete the challenge, so we can provide that assistance and help you to fulfil that ambition and raise self esteem and confidence.
The photo below shows people can choose to either go down from the top or go through the door way, (bottom right), which is a little lower.
The pads can velcro on and then position in places such as the legs, back and shoulders.
As an alternative to rock climbing people can try out rope climbing instead. With the use of our ropes pulley system participants can climb to the top of our ropes course purely on the ropes.
We have a cross bar that fits on to the rope, simply pull down and you go up, then slide the bar up again. Or alternatively why not just go hands on rope? Participants can do this straight out of a wheelchair, but you don’t necessarily have to be a wheelchair user to take part.
