XC’s high ropes obstacle course is situated 12m above the ground and is accessed through a passageway within the caving structure.

High rope courses for the public have increased in popularity over the last 20 years, although they have a long history dating back to the centuries. It is unclear where and when the first ropes course was created, but they have been identified as being used by the military to train soldiers as far back as the ancient Greeks.

High ropes are great for core stability, agility and balance as well a burst of adrenaline. They are open for you to try individually or as part of a party, group or corporate event.
