Thriftwood International Scout Campsite has recently become the UK’s first scout group to purchase a set of Monkey Hardware for its recreational tree climbing area.
Colin Tilbrook Centre Manager at Thriftwood took the plunge to purchase a Basic set because, “they looked fun and easy to use, with minimal maintenance. Its a great activity for climbers but it also provides an element of experiential learning for the belayer. We hope to buy a bigger set ‘Rock and Ice’ in the future to provide a tougher challenge for older kids”
The countdown begins to what could be Europes longest Zipline.
Rumour has it that ISC in Wales are sponsor-partners in the project with Designers and Builders ZIPWORLD. Watch this space for more details.
Designing and building Ziplines is not as easy at it looks – as Boris would tell you! The choice of harness, trolley, wire and cable tension are all critical to the comfort and safety of a zipline user. All CCS supplied Zipline gear is fully CE approved and rigorously designed and tested as fit for use.
