Game description

A ladder is laid horizontally on two holders (scaffolding) and fixed down. The group must now monkey across the ladder. Once a player has reached the other side, the next one may start.


Instead of a ladder a rope can be tied between 2 trees or tied over a brook.


The number of people who monkey across the ladder in the given time (2 minutes) are counted up.
