Charity abseils are an exhilarating and fun way to raise much needed funds for your charity of choice. Our team of experienced Rock Climbing Instructors will put you at ease with an in depth safety brief followed by a practice abseil on the ground, before heading to the top of the cliff or building for the real deal - abseiling 100 foot vertically to the ground!
Abseil events are either advertised publicly as open events for all to come to - see below for upcoming events - or as bespoke events which you can organise directly with us for a group of your choosing. Simply contact us if you want to do this
Our normal location for these events is at Altnadue Quarry, Castlewellan, which is a Sport NI owned and landscaped quarry specifically designed for rock climbing and abseiling. We can however also run these events at different locations around NI, such as buildings, bridges and even viaducts! so if you fancy a different location just ask us where we can go when you contact us to book an event.
