Big Tree Climb

Stand beneath ‘Doug,’ one of the tallest Douglas Fir trees at Heatree. Using a combination of climbing holds and tree branches, see how high you can get as you push yourself out of your comfort zone.

Your team will belay you and help encourage and support you as you climb as high as you dare. See the spectacular view across the treetops and the woodland below.
