Unlike many Guide Services, paying money does not gain you an automatic entry to a Rubicon Adventure outing. Our training environments are difficult, often isolated and sometimes very mentally and physically challenging!
Because of this, we need to determine your capability and suitability for our outings. To do this, every new client MUST complete at least one BASE level outing. On completion, your guide will provide feedback on your current skill sets and capability in the chosen terrain. This will determine your suitability for higher level challenges and provide you with areas to master should you wish to progress up the levels of Adventure Training intensity.
The majority of our training will have you operating in your lower Aerobic Range. Some sections of each outing will push you into your upper Aerobic Range and there will be opportunity to engage your Anaerobic System if desired!
