We provide a mobile climbing tower that can be utilised on your grounds for school events and galas, kayaking on local canals, climbing at cow and calf rocks, hill walking around the Bradford and Calder valleys, to activities further afield ranging from kayaking, mountain biking, walking, caving and gorge scrambling in the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales.
