The park has four routes, each with its own degree of difficulty. The routes start at ground level, but quickly climb up into the trees. Each route consists of a series of obstacles – including several zip wires over the deep gorge.
The climbing park is run by husband and wife Tine and Poul Eriksen, who also run nearby Genner Hoel pancake restaurant and campsite. The highest point in the park is some 25 metres above the forest floor, and according to Tine Eriksen it’s a combination of the fear of heights and the degree of difficulty of the particular route that provides such a challenge. It’s therefore a good idea not to choose a route that’s too difficult. The easiest route – which is white – is easy enough for children to complete.
Although you may find yourself at the height of the treetops, you needn’t fear for your safety. All those on the route are equipped with a helmet and climbing harness which is attached by a carabiner to a safety wire which runs all the way along the route. This carabiner cannot be opened when up in the treetops.
Prior to heading off on your own, you’re given instructions concerning the route and safety equipment by one of the climbing park’s instructors, who are all experienced climbers and have completed a safety course.
