Meet the beautiful blues for an adventure and spiritual journey into the centre of one of Australia's best climbing spots, rise above the hustle and bustle of Sydney and indulge in the fresh crisp mountain air. We will experience the raw elements as we get in touch with nature from a less likely angle “cliff side view”. There will be climbing, abseiling, hiking, yoga, sports conditioning, ice pools and hot baths, all jam packed into a 4-day adventure.

 

You will learn the basics of rock climbing, abseiling, sports strength/conditioning, yoga, cold therapy and pranayama breathwork.  Meet your new to-be friends, together you conquer your fears, support one another to move past mental and physical barriers, and learn new skills while maintaining your safety and well-being under the guidance of professional guides. We take a holistic approach as we understand the importance of relaxation and recovery. After two physically demanding active days, wind down in hot baths to end the trip. This experience will be a sensory overload so brace yourself as we take you on a journey of your inner and outer world.
