Design Overview

Can we create an obstacle course where an adult with the full command of their body can run alongside a participant in a wheelchair or with a prosthetic... and both be able to have a physically challenging and engaging experience?

In collaboration with ACG, the Adaptive Climbing Course is an all-ages, all-abilities, wheel-chair accessible 'pop-up' obstacle course.  Each element in the course is designed to be easily modified for the user if necessary, with safety and rigging systems designed into many of the more complex obstacles.
