Today we woke to a sunny sky! How fickle can the weather be!!!!
Into the bus and back to Betws y Coed to Tree Top Adventure…Following a detailed safety briefing and kit check, we were led up into the trees and set off on our first tree-top challenge – the orientation ring. This was a series of challenges involving moving from one tree to the next (normally 5-10 meters away). The method of crossing could be wobbly planks, a single rope, old tyres, of a Tarzan swing. At this point we were only 6-8 feet from the ground.
Once we had all survived the “orientation ring” we went on to similar challenges…but we were now 40 feet up!
The final challenge was a 50 feet straight drop on a “fan decender”…a serious test of belief in ones safety kit…little did we know that this was a mere baby compared to our next challenge…more of that later, enjoy the photos.
