It is impossible to discuss adventure and exploration without mentioning Sir Ranulph Fiennes. We love climbing frames and swingsets but more than that we love adventure and it doesn’t get more adventurous than Ranulph.
Sir Ranulph Fiennes is one of the most famous adventurers of our time. Born in the UK in 1944 and brought up in South Africa he went on to join, first the Royal Scots Greys, and then the SAS. Sir Ranulph is what we would call at CFUK, something of a real-life super hero. Amongst his long, long list of achievements he was the first to reach both Poles, the first to cross the Antarctic and Arctic Ocean, he led the first hover craft expedition up the world’s longest river (the Nile) and has climbed Mount Everest not once but four times raising millions of pounds for charity.
Proving his super human abilities further, just 3 months after suffering a massive heart attack, 3 day coma and double bypass Ranulph achieved the first 7x7x7 (seven marathons in seven consecutive days on all seven continents). In 1984 the Guinness Book of Records described him as ‘The World’s Greatest Living Explorer.’
What climbing frame would Ranulph buy: Topeka premium climbing frame.
It goes without saying that only our biggest, bestest most adventurous climbing frame will do for ‘The world’s greatest living explorer.’ There are two 14ft rocket slides, perfect for racing across the garden. And it’s not quite Everest but the play deck is 7ft off the ground and there is a lot of climbing, playing and exploring to do around the multi-level play deck area.
