Abseiling, the various techniques used to descend ropes, is an integral
part of climbing, but in itself is a fun and exhilarating experience.
Whether you'd like to try it for a thrill-seeking day or wish to learn
about the whole range of abseiling techniques, we will tailor a course
to suit your needs.
Thrill-seekers (one to two days)
Come with us and we'll throw you off some of the most exciting and impressive
rock faces in the Lake District. Experience the buzz of a free-hanging
abseil two hundred feet above the water. Watch your friends disappear
into space, safe in the knowledge that you're next! Alternatively, why
not head face first down one of the many crags of the Lakes District?!
This is a fantastic group activity for any stag or hen weekend at any
time of year. Groups of any size welcome.
We also offer abseiling for charity and promotional events.
Enjoy your flight!

all aspects from:

The majority of our abseils are located within the Lake District, but

North Wales, The Peak District, Scottish Islands and Cornwall.
In the Lake District, favourite abseils include: Shepherd's Crag Belvedere,
Brown Slabs, and Hodge Close Quarry.
