What are the main differences between the climbs?

Go Wild is our shortest and easiest climb, including approximately 1hr of climbing and is achievable by nearly everyone. If you can climb a ladder then you can do it.  Wild Thing continues on from Go Wild and adds around another 2 hours of climbing. It is steeper, more exposed and longer. Technically, it isn’t much harder than Go Wild, but it is higher off the ground. Lord of the Rungs is our advanced climb, it add around 1-2 hours more climbing after completing Wild Thing and includes going behind a 60m waterfall, an overhang and a Helicopter descent. Good fitness and a sense of adventure is required for this climb.

What can I expect on the day?

Expect loads of fun, an amazing adventure and incredible scenery on all tours. You will be briefed on safety and via ferrata systems before you start by your guide. Be prepared for walking up and down trails that are steep in sections. On the via ferrata, you will be climbing ladder rungs that run next to the waterfall and crossing bridges over the waterfall. You will be required to clip and unclip your via ferrata lanyard along the way. You will not get wet, however, you may get your feet wet at times. There are opportunities to swim in hidden pools and picnic along the way. The activity is not difficult, however you will be required to climb up ladder rungs. On the trek your feet will be mainly on solid ground, however, you will be required to use via ferrata safety systems in some places.
