Have you got the bottle? Can you trust the rope – or your instructor?
The most efficient way of getting down a steep cliff, abseiling is also a superb skill to learn, requiring control in a challenging situation, and offering a real experience of ‘perceived risk’ adventure.
Also very popular as a fund-raising activity.
If you do not happen to live near a convenient cliff, A+ can arrange abseils at local climbing walls, off bridges or down suitable buildings (no windows!).
Church towers, school classroom blocks and end walls of accommodation blocks have all proved great venues for this vertical adventure for our groups. What buildings near you have caught your eye recently?
The appropriate qualification for setting up and running abseiling is the MLTE SPA (Single Pitch Award). A+ will organise SPA training and assessment courses as the needs arises for our team. See Training for more details.
