PWE Unique* Tour Classification Chart

The PWE Unique* Tours Classification Chart will give you a gauge on what physical abilities or challenges are expected when attempting an outdoor adventure tour with us. We use the Yosemite Decimal System* as the standard classification for outdoor adventure tours that we provide.

This is to be used in reference to outdoor trekking only.

Class 1

Walking with a low chance of injury.

Class 2

Simple scrambling, with the possibility of occasional use of the hands. Little potential danger is encountered.

Class 3

Scrambling with increased exposure. Handholds are necessary. A rope can be carried but is usually not required. Falls are not always fatal.

Class 4

Simple climbing, with exposure. A rope is often used. Natural protection can be easily found. Falls may well be fatal.

Class 5

Technical, free climbing involving rope, belaying, and other protection hardware for safety. Un-roped falls can result in severe injury or death.

Am I ready and fit enough for the PWE Unique* Tours?

Adventure Readiness Chart

A) Personal Fitness Level

Below Average
When walking around the mall for 20 minutes and you already need to have to sit down. Seeing a flight of stairs is like staring into the devil's eyes. Oh dear.
When you are able to walk and jog for 30 minutes without fainting. You have been doing some form of exercise for the last month or so. You see yourself as a fairly active person in general good health. You're game for what the jungle terrain can throw at you.

Above Average
When you are able to run the half marathon without making a fool of yourself. Able to walk up many flights of steps and still smile at the same time. Generally, this means you're the envy of your peers.

B) Outdoor Skills Level

No camping or trekking experience. Have not been in the jungle or have had any outdoor adventure experience, ever. Shopping Malls are your thing.
Have been on trekking trails, rock climbing outdoors or jungle camping at least once in the last 2 years. The jungle holds no real trepidation to you.

Have been on trekking trails, outdoors exploring or jungle camping more times than you can remember in the last 5 years. Have taken courses on jungle survival and first aid training. A real outdoors person.

C) Water Confidence Level

Unable to swim. Fear of water, and will lose bodily function when faced with any activities dealing with a large body of water like rivers, lakes and sea.
May not be a swimmer but confident enough on the water if provided with the necessary safety and floatation devices.

A real water-baby. Takes to the water like a dolphin.
