Tyrolean traverse is a method of crossing through free space between two high points on a rope without a hanging cart or cart equivalent. This is used in a range of mountaineering activities: rock climbing, technical tree climbing, caving and water crossings. A zip-line is in essence a Tyrolean traverse which is traveled down quickly with the assistance of gravity.
GROUP MAX 10 CLIMBERS. THERE WILL BE TWO INSTRUCTORS!

The Traverse will be sent from top of Secret Service route to top of Middle Finger route. 50 feet of traverse above 120 feet of void.
