Abseiling is descending backwards over an 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.
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 you're not great with heights or want to practice before the big one. It’s surrounded by amazing tunnels which are open for us to explore and enjoy.
Why not make a full day of it and do some Ghyll scrambling
