No experience is necessary as you will be guided by qualified and certified instructors.

Abseiling Corporate Adventures

Abseiling also known as rappelling uses the skill of getting down vertical drops by the use of a rope. A rope runs through a friction device which is attached to a harness around your waist. Each abseil session starts with a briefing on safety, how to abseil, an introduction on the equipment used and lastly a demonstration.

Is Abseiling Dangerous

Abseiling can be dangerous and only attempted after training from experienced climbing instructors, and the proper gear. All participants must wear and use the safety equipment provided which includes a helmet, harnesses, slings, rope and gloves.

Preparation is the key to make abseiling as safe as possible well before any abseil takes place. Many injuries have occurred due to worn out or faulty equipment and our qualified instructors always check the equipment is in good working order.

Proper preparation will allow you to enjoy the experience as you descend natural beauty and soak up what the great outdoors has to offer.

Abseiling for Beginners

If you’re a beginner practice many times and learn to rappel/abseil from short drops first. You should learn the important skills needed to abseil in safety first, before progressing through a variety of higher drops. Beginner’s Tip: you should have your hips bent at 90 degrees so your legs are straight to push you out from the wall.

How to Brake when Abseiling

Your most important hand is the one you’ll use for braking. it manages your speed as you descend down the rope and by keeping your brake hand down by your hip, you’re able to maintain constant friction of the rope through the rappel device.

You can use two break hands when doing a free rappel which allows more control. For free rappels, you should always use an auto-block knot as a safety backup.

Some Basic Abseiling Equipment

  • Helmet in case of bumps against a wall or rock face
  • Static ropes of around 11mm diameter with a 2% stretch
  • Rappel devise also known as a descender which allows the rope to be fed through controlling the speeds of descent
  • Carabiners to hold numerous parts of the climbing system together
  • Descenders which allows the rope to be fed through under control often used for the speed of descent
  • A harness which secures around your waist and upper legs forming a seat
  • Backup knots are especially important in case you lose control although an experienced brake person will stand at the bottom to control your descent
 

 

Forward Facing Abseiling

A technique invented by the SAS was facing forwards while abseiling. It works in the same way as a regular rappel but you get that extra adrenaline pump, seeing what’s below, and perhaps the chance to show off to your mates.

Quotations are inclusive of:

Prize for the winning team member, transportation to and from hotel, equipment, consultants, MC, and a professional photographer.
