Go ape was an all round amazing experience, last minute replacement for another activity and was not disappointed, very laid back atmosphere after initial safety precautions, letting you go at your own pace! Very tiring but very worth it!

I agree wind will be an issue and you may struggle to climb the rope ladder but once your up you will be fine.
