ABSEILING

Abseiling is a technique that climbers, cavers and others use to get quickly, easily and safely down a pitch. Although strictly not a sport in itself, abseiling is certainly good fun.

 

We can provide training and then you can experience the thrill of adventure activities like abseiling for yourself. There are a variety of crags allowing you to start on something easy and then work up to a level which is very scary indeed!

 

Small groups between one and eight people are not combined with other groups, so pay the "group charge" for a "maximum group size" of eight. For more information about prices see our prices page.
