Mohawk Walk

mohawk walk

: For the group as a whole to traverse the entire length of the series of cables (some are longer and some shorter) without falling or stepping off. If someone falls or steps off the cable, that person, or persons, should return to the starting point or end of the line.

Set Up: A cable is strung tautly between poles (a series of 4 poles) at a height of no more than 2 ½ feet above the ground. Turnbuckles are used on each cable which allow a convenient put up and take down capability. Always connect the traversing rope and check all cables and connections to make sure they are tight.
Special Instruction/Safety:
• The facilitator and all those participants not yet on the cable, should act as spotters. Spotting is very essential on this element
• If a tension traverse, swing, or multi vine is part of the crossing, make sure that at least one spotter is assigned to the person making the attempt
• All individuals must have at least one foot in contact with the cable at all times.
• Participants must contract with their spot team before stepping on the cable.
• Participants should not lunge, leap, or jump toward the telephone pole.
• The entire team should do whatever they need to do to support the participants as they travel along the cable.
• If participants are going to fall, they should not fight the falling tendency and should step down off the cable.
