1) Rock Climbing and Abseiling

From complete novices who have never put on a harness or moved on rock through to young people wishing to push themselves and tackle harder climbs, our rock climbing days are structured to provide maximum fun, challenge and enjoyment. Maybe try your hand at abseiling as well - with safety and support from your experienced instructor, learn how to control your own abseil descent and take in the views as you explore life in the vertical world! As with all of our activities, safety is paramount and our instructors are experienced Mountaineering Instructors who regularly rock climb to a high standard themselves - perfect for inspiring young people. We meet at the Longshaw Estate and take the minibus out to the crag offering the best location for the day, leaving enough flexibility to meet everyone's needs and out-fox the weather!abseiling-for-families-langdale

 

2) Multi-Activity Day: Climbing, Abseiling and a Tyrolean style Zip-Wire

Another action-packed adventure! Join us for a full day at a beautiful local site in the Peak District where you will have a chance to get harnessed up and rock climb, abseil and experience the thrill of a 'tyrolean traverse' - a horizontal zip wire to pull yourself across and get views of the Peak District from a totally different perspective. A day that is sure to inspire you for a long time afterwards.

 

3) Weaselling

Above ground caving! An exciting journey of scrambling over rocks, journeying through caves, climbing under boulders and discovering adventures that you never knew existed. All 'weasels' wear helmets and older clothing along with a pair of trainers are required. Weaselling can take place whatever the weather and is bound to gather smiles from people of all ages - parents included!
