ETRIERS

An “Etrier” is the name given to the short flexible ladders used by mountaineers when climbing overhangs.  Participants need to traverse a simulated overhang using two etrier ladders only, transferring weight and balance to get from one point to another. The Etriers activity is challenging for particpants, however through effective teamwork, co-operation and communication, participants should be able to achieve the activity with relative ease.
