Ever wanted to try abseiling but lack the confidence? There is no excuse on this fantastic one day package, teaching participants of any skill level the finer points of technique regarding the sport of abseiling. Experience the thrills while focusing on developing good technique, personal confidence and having fun.
The day commences with an introduction to the instructors and a general safety briefing. An overview of the equipment used during the program is provided and fitting of personal gear. Your instructor will proceed with a demonstration on abseiling technique and further specific safety points. There is a high instructor to participant ratio (1:8) ensuring the safety and quality of your experience throughout the day. You are then closely supervised through a mock descent in which you learn about attaching to and disconnecting from the rope, safety calls, and the back-up braking procedure.
Then it's off to the nursery slope for your first abseil! It's nearly all downhill from here (except for the walk back up between descents). As your confidence and skills develop under the encouraging direction of the instructors, you move on to more vertical and higher rock faces. The aim of the exercise is to help you develop the confidence to tackle the main face by the end of the day. For those seeking more of a challenge, you may wish to attempt the exhilaration of forward run downs - abseiling face first down the cliff.
What makes this abseiling day different is that rock climbing is also provided in the day's activities. So if you ever wanted to try abseiling and rock climbing but lacked the confidence then this experience is perfect for you, as you are assured to have all the tools at your disposal to tackle the cliffs before the day is out.
