About
Launched in 2001, the ONE AXE name speaks to Director Frederick Schuett’s character of living life on the edge. On his first mountaineering adventure, he complained to his instructor that the icy slope wasn’t much of a challenge. The instructor took away one of his axes. Unknowingly, he created ONE AXE Fred. Frederick’s passion for climbing and his lessons on the mountain are the catalyst to the three divisions of ONE AXE Inc. ONE AXE Team building provides creative solutions for corporate training and development. Our corporate programs provide fresh and unique team building with exciting experiential learning opportunities that accelerate relationships, create cohesiveness and deliver results. ONE AXE Pursuits is also a leader in recreational adventures such as outdoor rock climbing, zipline over the Elora Gorge, ice climbing on frozen waterfalls, spelunking through caves and rappelling down limestone cliffs. With programs for the complete beginner to the intermediate climber, we

Urban and Cliff Rappelling
Oct. 2021
You get an instant feeling that you are in safe hands with Frederick. I'm beyond grateful to have had one of the best teaching us, who's passionate about teaching others. My husband and I had the opportunity to try out cliff and urban rappelling and so glad we did! It was such an exhilarating way to spend time with your significant other and a time we will never forget. I know we will be back!!! Thanks again Fred and Christa :)

Couples Cliff Rappel
Oct. 2021
Really enjoyed our couples cliff rappelling adventure atop Elora Gorge. Frederick is an excellent and experienced instructor who eased us into feeling more confident with each rappel. Christa's customer service too was top-notch.

Would love to see more couples-only adventures from this company. The group and private instruction trips look awesome (and I'm sure they are!) but a bit too pricey if there's only 2 of you.

Covered every thing that I will be doing with access to steep banks for landscape photography. Fastest 6 hours of instruction I have ever had more than happy with Fredrick’s instruction

AMAZING!
Sep. 2021
We recently took our corporate team (approx. 30 people) to participate in the Mission Impossible event hosted by One Axe Pursuits. It was nothing short of AMAZING! The event team was so professional, organized and FUN! The activities were original, exciting and everyone was able to participate (I am 23 weeks pregnant was a little concerned prior to, but I had NOTHING to worry about, there is a way for everyone on the team to contribute). We will be hosting future events with One Axe and would happily recommend them to anyone willing to listen :).

The experience was fun and Frederick was a great teacher. I would also like to thank Christa for quickly answering all the questions we had. We would recommend this for anyone new to rappelling.

Highly recommend!
Aug. 2021 • Family
My 13-year-old did his first ever rappel today and he absolutely loved it! He’s normally a very nervous kid who doesn’t love heights. Fred talked him through it all and he did a few increasingly hard rappels. He’s so full of confidence now and says it’s one of his most favourite activities he’s ever done. I can’t recommend this experience and company enough!

So much fun learning how to repel from Frederick. He was friendly, informative and relaxed. We got to go at our own pace, with no pressure! Will definitely book another experience with them!

We had a great time! Frederick walked us through rappelling basics and we got a few chances to hop down the cliffside.

An Unforgetable Experience
Aug. 2021
We redeemed a gift certificate for my 9 year old son, who has an adventurous streak. The urban rappelling experience down the side of an old church was truly unique and breathtakingly exciting to watch. Frederick and Christa are very congenial hosts and instructors, both ramping excitement and quelling nerves. They are continually aware of your safety without sacrificing the true awe of the experience. For those looking for an original event to partake, we would highly recommend this company and experience. We will definitely be booking another adventure here.
