We had originally signed up for the repelling out the church. but then the lockdown happened and they called and arranged for us to do the outdoor cliff repelling instead. We enjoyed it very much never felt unsafe for a second and had a lot of fun!

Thank you so much! It was such a pleasure to have you guys out with us! Thanks also for your flexibility during lockdown. We were unable to do urban rappelling in grey zone but you were flexible and came out for cliff rappelling instead. A wonderful time for all! We hope to see you out with us on our summer zipline extreme or ice climbing!

Great experience, well run, was really thrilling. Adjusted to suit my two boys (8 and 10) so it made it that much better.

We had an amazing morning rappelling with Fredrick! He took the time to teach, advise, and calm all fears. We left feeling really proud of our accomplishments and found each trip down the cliff was smoother and faster. Loved the extra challenge for each successive turn. Can’t wait to come in another season.

We had no rappelling experience before but Frederick is a great teacher. He explained everything and was very calm. We enjoyed it a lot. The first time you go down the rock you are totally scared and totally thrilled. The second time it feels a lot more in control, the third time you try also to do the challenge that Frederick proposes - and think already of booking for next time.

We had a great time with Frederick. Started with rappelling down the ravine and then onto superman style ziplining. The whole family had a great time. Beautiful location in Elora. Fredrick was very knowledgeable and made the whole day a lot of fun.
