Exciting winter adventure

Had an amazing time learning to ice climb at One Axe Pursuits. They were a great team with lots of experience and provided a whole day of fun on the ice.

Life is about trying new things and meeting new people. There is no better "stretch" experience then spending a day with the experts at "one axe pursuits". I tried the "ice climbing" course and it was amazing. Don't worry if you've never climbed before--the morning session is purely a careful review of the process and the afternoon allows you to...

The official name of this activity is urban rappelling. It did not sound that crazy until I was standing in the window frame, 60 feet up in the air, with a harness around my middle, and I was told to adjust my body from standing straight up and down to having my feet pressed against the outside wall, facing down,...

I took the Top Rope Anchors Course, and the Rappel and Ascend Course at Rattle Snake Point on two weekends this fall. Both courses are a full day event, and you have to be ready to learn a lot of material in a short period of time. That being said, our instructor Steve was very thorough, and I left both... More

This ziplining experience, across the Elora Gorge, was awesome!!! The instructors were helpful and pretty easy going. I did the zipline, then my 8 year old son did it. We both loved it!!! We could have done it all day, if we had more time. It was a bit pricey for the time it takes to do it; but, it... More

One Axe Pursuits Spelunking - September. We had to reschedule our date three times because of thunderstorms, but the administration crew was very helpful and always gave efficient updates! Finally, the rain held for a beautiful day in September. Our instructor Jill was fantastic. It's a manageable hike through the park. You rappel 3-4 times into caves. At the bottom,... More

I took one axe pursuits intro to rock climbing course last weekend, and I could not have been happier with the day. It was easy to book, and the staff and instructor were friendly and knowledgeable. They let you progress at your own rate and give you helpful tips for some of the harder climbs. I climbed all day and... More

Wonderful experience for us! First time I was able to take a superman dive off a cliff! The guides, Larry and Adam, were very helpful and supportive. We would love to try further activities with this organization! Ice climbing sounds fun! Thank you!
