Abseiling basically involves lowering yourself down a massive cliff face on a rope. It is a great adrenaline rush. Depending on where you come from in the world you may know abseiling as “rappelling”. In England we use the German word “abseil” which when translated means “to rope down”.
During these sessions you will learn the technique of abseiling and lower yourself down into a huge disused slate quarry. You may also get the option of exploring the quarries tunnels.
Abseiling is a great activity that will get your pulse racing. It is a good activity to book onto if you are worried about the weather forecast as it can be run in almost all weather conditions at all times of year. In fact I have never had to cancel an abseil yet.
The Abseil sessions take place in a massive disused quarry in Little Langdale. The quarry used will either be Hodge Close Quarry or Cathedral Quarry. Both of these quarries have massive abseils in the region of 100-120 ft. Stunning scenic views will surround you but they can only be enjoyed if you dare open your eyes.
