Tyrolean Traversing

Tyrolean traverse at Outdoor Elements Team Building Centre in Lancashire


What is a Tyrolean Traverse?

Tensioned ropes span a ravine allowing a person wearing a harness to cross suspended from pulleys on ropes. This can be done as an activity itself or can be expanded by getting the group to first construct the bridge. This involves a good deal of processing of information and following instructions. Also, problem solving to work out how to get the equipment across the ravine.
