Don't worry if you've never abseiled before or haven't got a friend to come along with you, our Adventurous Women ® ™ group coordinator will introduce you to other ladies who are there to give it a go and then our expert guides will have you sailing down the slopes again and again .... A great day out!!
But... wait... there's more! This time we're also having a go at the Flying Fox as well!
Abseil events have always sold out quite quickly in the past, so be sure to get on board and get your payment in as soon as possible to secure your place!
The session has been designed to show you the basics of abseiling, and gives you the opportunity to have a go on our 18 metre high, “nursery” site. Included is the high adrenalin fun of our 70m long flying fox, built on site by senior roping technicians. The focus is on developing safe practices and a high level personal confidence to take on all challenges, but most of all, to have fun.
The session commences with an introduction and welcome by our friendly skilled instructors followed by a venue safety briefing, an overview of all roping equipment used on the program and fitting of personal abseiling gear. A demonstration of abseiling techniques followed by a short practical session using these skills on level ground helps to reinforce these techniques. A final briefing on safe roping practices and now we are ready, it's off to do our first descent.
It's nearly all downhill from here (except for the walk back up between descents). As your confidence and skills develop under the encouraging direction of the instructors, you will become much more comfortable in the vertical environment, hopefully tackling the abseil and flying fox over and over again.
