Throughout your experience, you are on a fixed rail, with instructors on hand to offer help and encouragement. Have you got the bottle?

Our aerial adventure course consists of

  • Tight-rope walk
  • Hanging vines
  • Rickety bridges
  • Burmese bridge
  • Postman’s Walk
  • Swaying Climbing Feature
  • The Swaying Log Challenge
  • The Swing Platform followed by the notorious ‘Leap of Faith’ where you leap across the 5m chasm to the safety of the other side!
  • Giant Swing

Most sessions allow 2 circuits of the course before you abseil down to the bottom, where your instructor will escort you to the Giant Swing, where you are winched up 15m, before 3 2 1 SWING!

Experience the thrill of freefall as you plummet 12m and swing 50m horizontally – a simply awesome rush.

I'm originally from Ayrshire but stay in Fort William now so I can focus totally on my climbing. I feel I've pushed certain facets of my climbing as far as I can considering I have only one hand so next for me is to move onto the Greater Ranges and my first trip to the Himalayas is in the pipeline. I work at the Ice Factor as they allow me to work part time and very kindly sponsor me which allows me more time to climb/train and with severe problems after my fall time is at a premium to achieve as many of my ambitions as possible. I also work there as I find the team great to work with.
