Cane Tower Team Building Exercise

Your team are lost in a bamboo forest, the only real hope is to catch the attention of people in the nearest village before nightfall. To be seen from the village, articles of clothing must be hoisted to exactly 6 metres on two separate structures. Night is falling, there is limited time.

The teams must build two free-standing structures, each 6m high, using canes and string. The structure/s must be free-standing (it cannot be stuck into the ground, held up by hand or tied to something else).
