Abseiling has traditionally been the method of approaching rock climbs from the top or retreating off a rock route to safety. Abseiling has now evolved into an activity in its own right and is a real adrenalin rush.
Abseiling is the act of ‘sliding’ in a controlled way down fixed ropes. Abseilers can control their own speed of descent whereas climbers tend to lower one another.
Abseils can be any length, from a few metres to a monster, any angle, gently sloping to free hanging and off of a variety of different terrain, from natural or quarried rock faces to disused railway bridges and other manmade structures. A perfect activity on its own or can be combined with some rock climbing or bouldering for a great day out.
We can also arrange abseils on manmade structures for charity groups and larger events.
So why abseil? Simple, we believe that this is an activity that has the potential of really pushing its participants. Fully backed up with independent safety ropes you are free to experience the thrill in complete safety.
