An Overview of Abseiling

Abseiling involves descending ropes using a friction device attached to your harness. It's used to tackle terrain that would be too dangerous or time-consuming to descend on foot.


Costs can vary depending on club/association


All climbing equipment is provided, but bring clothes that you don't mind getting a bit grubby and footwear that has good grip. If you are taking part outside, it's a good idea to have a waterproof coat.
