Lake District

Abseiling - Take on the challenge!

Experience the thrill of leaning back and abseiling down a vertical rock face! Abseiling is both a challenging and rewarding activity, especially if you have a healthy fear of heights! Our big abseils are set within spectacular Lake District scenery and are impressive to behold. Under the watchful eye of our experienced instructors, you'll harness up and descend on specialist abseiling ropes down to the bottom of the rock. Your instructor will have you safely attached to a second safety rope so you can descend with confidence.
