Abseiling is the ultimate outdoor adrenaline activity. Get into it on your Derby stag weekend!
This classic outdoor adventure sport has its roots in climbing. Abseiling is the art of rappelling down from a high point to a lower one, either using a rope and a solid surface (like a wall or a cliff-face) or descending in midair using only the rope. It’s how pro climbers get from one spot to another when there are no hand- or foot-holds, and it’s real ball-shrinking stuff!
Derby’s the perfect base for exploring the Peaks and their surrounding areas. And the team at this outdoor adventure centre know exactly where to go to maximise the adrenaline factor! Get the boys together for a massive test of manhood, as expert instructors take you to a really high place and convince you to step over the edge.
Most lads on a stag weekend end up taking on one of the area’s most heart-stopping spots: a bridge over a beautiful river. Abseil down to the water, or take the soft route and go for a descent that gets you straight to dry land! Either way, you’ll experience a moment of total fear before you step off into the void. With every instinct telling you not to go, you’ll need to muster up some serious nuts to take that first leap…
Think you’ve got what it takes to step into the unknown? With the instructors giving you encouragement and advice, you’ll find a way to make it back to solid ground.
