What is abseiling?
Abseiling is an activity which has its roots in climbing and mountaineering. Abseiling is used as a way to retreat off high alpine climbing routes and is now enjoyed by many as an exciting alternative activity.
For your abseiling event or session
will kit you out with a harness and a helmet then attached firstly to a safety rope and then to static abseil rope using a figure of eight and a karabiner. Using the figure of eight you will make your way down the abseil rock face at your own pace. With an
instructor holding the safety rope this ensures your safety at all times. If you let go, your instructor has you safe at all times.
is an exciting activity, start off small and move up to something more challenging, here are a few videos to see what its all about.

“Top stag activities! !”
Just back from a weekend in the lakes for a stag do. I organised the weekend and was recommended to use Adventure21. The communication I had when enquiring, booking and then sorting out the finer details with Adventure21 was first rate with fast and informative responses at every step. On the day from the start instructors Dave and Pete approach the it with humour and charisma but quickly switched to serious safety protocol at the appropriate points. Abseiling in the morning was good fun and even the lads with a fear of heights were supported and subtly encouraged so they went well out of their comfort zone with no drama. After a few descents we all got well into it. After a lunch break we got kitted out for the gorge scramble. This was an amazing session. Great combination of wading up the river and scrambling up waterfalls and finishing with some increasingly challenging (or should I say ******* scary) jumps off waterfalls and ledges. plenty of encouragement but no pressure from Dave and Pete to jump. Over all the day was exceptionally well organised with knowledgeable, enthusiastic and fun instructors. The lads loved it and we were all buzzing after. We're talking about booking another day with them next year to do it all again!!
