Ladder Lashing   Ladder Lashing Activity   Scout Activity

This Activity is meant for Boy Scouts.
For each patrol: 8 lashing ropes, 4 sticks at least 2 inch diameter and 2 feet long, two poles at least 6 feet long
Explain that the rungs do not need to reach both ends of the ladder. Leave extra pole length on the 'top' end to hold onto when climbing.
Patrols gather at a starting line some distance from their equipment.
On 'GO' signal, first player runs to equipment and lashes a stick to a pole then returns to tag the next player.
This player lashes the stick to the other pole, completing the first rung of the ladder.
Repeat this until the ladder is complete.
When the last player returns to tag, the entire patrol runs to the ladder, lifts one end, and has one scout climb to the top. The entire patrol gives their patrol yell to win.

Continue the contest until all patrols are finished.

Scoring can include:
