ABSEILING IN THE LAKE DISTRICT
WHAT ON EARTH IS ABSEILING ?
Abseiling is descending backwards over a edge and down steep or vertical rock faces to the bottom. This is a great way to PUSH your nerves and is guaranteed to test the bravest of people .
The Lake District has a variety of amazing venues that offer a mixture of heights from a smaller 15 meter one to an impressive 60m one. Whether your a dare devil or wanting to just give it a try there really is something for everyone.
Abseiling is a great half day activity and works well with another activity to make a full day of adventure . Your instructor will provide you with everything you need and ensure your 100% safe.
Location: Cathedral quarry, Little Langdale
Level: Beginner – Intermediate ( suitable for most )
Cathedral quarry is situated in an incredible location just next to the beautiful village of Little Langdale. In a disused slate mine, it offers an impressive 60m abseil and a smaller one if your not great with height’s or want to practise before the big one.
