Also see our Mighty-Mountains and Mega-Mountains options.


We'll start with a rock climb and abseil session a few minutes walk from the car. After a lunch break, we'll go on a treasure hunt, map in hand and go adventuring (don't tell the kids they are learning to navigate!), returning to the start by 4pm (the day could be reversed if weather dictates).
However: walking, climbing, navigating, abseiling - the mix is up to you.
