Scouts pulling together


Something I had never seen (not having been part of any of the youth movements when I grew up in the US).

The Scouts lashed together a wooden A-shaped frame, stood a child up on it, had kids keep it balanced by pulling on supporting ropes, and slowly "walked" the frame forward as if on two legs. 
There must be a name for this in Hebrew and English.
Anybody know?

It was part of the big Happening our Meitar Scouts put on for the community.

No idea. I was never part of those groups either growing up, though my elder siblings were.

That's Teamwork, Trust, Togetherness. I was a Girl Scout U.S. it was a good group. Never saw this.

I started searching and found many ropes courses.It's a low rope exercise. Not sure of the name, but many more exercise variations online. Like this one:

Travelogue for the Universe, thanks. Wow, your ROPES course link brings me back to Heifer Ranch, Arkansas, where I did the low AND high Ropes course in the late 1990s, twice! Pretty scary and challenging, but something I'll remember all my life.
