The Ropes Bundle
Ropes can bring such fun and joy as swings, rope bridges and lashings. They can also cause fair bit of frustration if you’ve ever had to untangle a big knot of ropes…
The Ropes bundle gives you a comprehensive basic overview on what’s important to consider when sourcing and taking care of ropes. We have short films to teach you what we consider the most useful knots when running groups in the woods. And then a bunch of fun challenges that you can use to apply knots – these can create the need and hunger in participants to learn knots and lashings and then they can try them out straight away such as with the stretcher challenge.
