Outdoor climbing is where the fun, the atmosphere and the exhilaration really begin. If you’ve ever wanted to try climbing then do it outdoors and you’ll be hooked. The session will be tailored to your ability and aspirations. After climbing in the morning spend the afternoon whizzing down the purpose built 30ft abseil tower, where you can learn the basics of abseiling, confident in the knowledge that you are attached to a safety rope. You can up the adrenaline even more and try it blindfolded!
On arrival at the venue you will be met by your instructor, who will conduct a full safety briefing. It is then time to get kitted up with all the safety gear before you begin climbing. During your session you will cover knots & belaying, safety awareness, climbing technique, climbing etiquette, introduction to climbing & bouldering. Because of the soft nature of the rocks you can not abseil on them as it causes too much damage, so a short 20min drive will take you to a 33ft purpose built abseiling tower, where you will cover abseiling techniques, confidence tests and blindfold abseiling.

As an introduction to abseiling and climbing your experience is superb. Teacher spent time with me discussing what I wanted to achvie and nobody pushed me to climb higher or abseil faster. Saw some people abseiling with blindfolds on. Thought they were insane.
