Ropes course challenges strength, core and courage
But if you hang in there, it will thoroughly work your legs, arms and back. Ropes courses are designed to make the perceived risk feel huge when the actual risk is low. That’s because you are completely, securely and, in all ways, anchored in.
Rope-climbing harnesses, helmets, thick lanyards and auto-locking carabiners that attach to cables above each obstacle — plus staff, plus a few key safety rules — all keep you safe. The safety mechanisms are crucial when you fall. They don’t help much when you freeze from fear.
