Rock Climbing and Abseiling

Our professional and experienced staff are passionate about the outdoor environment and take great pride and pleasure in sharing their enthusiasm with you. Our most popular session is Rock Climbing with abseiling.

On a combined Rock Climbing and abseiling session, you’ll begin the day Rock Climbing, and finish with an abseil.

Abseiling can get you out of some tricky situations and be a lot of fun, but it can also feel scary, and you’ll need to overcome your fears if you’re going to lower yourself off the edge of a cliff and safely down to the bottom. If you enjoy the mountains and want to try something new, or are looking to overcome your fear of heights and test your mental strength, adding abseiling to your climbing session is for you!

Location

Sessions that run to the south of Manchester take place at a peak district crag, no more than 45 mins drive from the centre of the city. Book several sessions, and we’ll visit several different venues! A typical venue is Windgather Rocks.

Sessions that run north of Manchester typically take place at Cadshaw Castle, about 45 mins drive north of the city.

Facilities

Climbing and abseiling venues are typically in remote countryside, so there are no facilities there. Parking is usually free, but you’ll need to bring everything with you that you’ll need during the day.
