Am I Adventure Fit?

 

It's hard to determined that you are fit to do the adventures we offer. So, we thought, if we have some sort of classification system, it will help you decide which adventure into the jungle would suit you/your group. You will find our Malaysian outdoor adventure trips will have classifications to assist your choices. Here's what these classifications mean:

Difficulty Levels

Difficulty levels will give you a heads-up on what physical abilities or challenges expected when attempting an adventure trip. When possible we use the Yosemite Decimal System as the standard classification for outdoor adventures we describe.

Class 5

Technical free climbing involving rope, belaying, and other protection hardware for safety. Un-roped falls can result in severe injury or death.

Class 4

Simple climbing, with exposure. A rope is often used. Natural protection can be easily found. Falls may well be fatal.

Class 3

Scrambling with increased exposure. A rope can be carried but is usually not required. Falls are not always fatal.

Class 2

Simple scrambling, with the possibility of occasional use of the hands. Little potential danger is encountered.

Class 1

Walking with a low chance of injury.


Fitness Level

This classification will help you estimate your physical fitness in attempting any adventures. With this, you can avoid underestimating OR overestimating your fitness for an adventure.

Below Average

Able to walk on flat terrain for 30 minutes. Able to climb two flight stairs and don't feels like throwing up after.

Above Average

Able to run 10km without a single stop. Able to swim 1km and still have a jog later.
