The outdoor adventures and challenge are also quite popular at the Miraval Resort. The towering Mt. Lemmon give visitors a chance to rock climb and rappel on one of the largest mountains in the Tucson area, and no experience is required. It will be an all-day event, but lunch and all your gear are provided for you. Try the obstacle course and climb the rock wall, or zip line through the desert. The tight rope teaches you that you must let go of one of the ropes before you can grasp another to help balance you down the tightrope. The Face to Face rope course is done with two people, seeing how well each reacts under pressure and stress and how they communicate with each other under those circumstances. Two cable tight ropes are set in a “V” shape. The end both of you start on is very widely spaced, forcing the two partners to grasp and lean on each other’s hands as they slowly maneuver don each of their tight ropes toward the end of the “V.” It forces you to slow down and focus on each other as you work and communicate to reach the end together.
