Awesome day with our guides Pete & Ian. Done lots of high rope, bungee, parachute etc. before - this is no lesser an experience. Several 'heart in throat' moments crossing slippery wooden beams over 20-30m drops, scrambling traverses on narrow ledges etc. Well worth it.

We came today for the ultimate extreme trip with guides Pete and Levi, we had an amazing experience, some bits were quite challenging and the free fall drop at the end was so much fun. Thanks for a great day. Steph and Gareth
