Dare you walk backwards over a cliff?

You’ve seen heroes and heroines dangling over ledges in films, now it’s your chance to have a go! Abseiling for the first time takes real guts, but it isn’t as difficult as it looks. We’ll put you into a harness, tie on a safety rope and send you backwards down a rock face. You control your own descent – whether you’re looking down into Sandford Quarry with its 60ft/20M abseils, or the scarier Split Rock 100 ft/33M drop.

When you reach the bottom, you’ll want to do it all over again. You’ll have tested your nerve, challenged yourself, and won! Oh, and the views are pretty amazing too.
