Home/Group adventure activities/Abseiling Lake District half day

Abseiling is great fun. We know that it can also be a huge challenge. Whether you’re after the biggest abseil we can find, or it’s your first time we have the experience to give you a great time!

I would certainly recommend this if you are visiting the lakes. We had half day of abseiling and half day ghyll scrambling, amazing experience! If you are up for a challenging and adventurous day this you be perfect for you. Our instructor Claire was brilliant really encouraging and a pleasure to spend the day with. Thanks For making my boyfriends birthday 🙂


I want to share the fantastic time we had today with Stuart from Climb365.
I called him the day before as we were up visiting family and hoping that we could do a bit of abseiling with my father in law as he used to do it over 20 years ago.
We have two girls aged 8 and 13. He was able to do a private session and from the very start, found him to be great with my kids, having a laugh, friendly banter and most importantly was very professional and always had safety in mind which kept my wife (who was very nervous)at ease.
She loved it and would now do it again. We did a practice shorter wall before going onto a stunning 40+Mtr face, walking through caves/tunnels which just added to the family fun. Stuart also matched the pace of our learning so we could stretch ourselves if we wanted to. Will absolutely use this guy again. Awesome

“With over 20 years experience in leading groups……. lots of people succeed when they didn’t think it was possible.”

We’ve seen it all! From terrified to confident, beginner to expert or young to old, abseiling is something everyone can have a go at a level that suits them. We know our local area really well and the best venues for each group. At each venue, we rig all the abseils ourselves so we can choose the appropriate route for you.

We will teach you all you need to know for your session including how to use a harness, tie in and use the abseil device. You’ll abseil yourself down the route with our instructor using a safety back up.

You don’t need any experience or prior knowledge to have a great half-day session abseiling. If you’ve abseiled before and want something a bit more challenging, that’s not a problem….We know some scary abseils too!

Abseils vary in length from 10 to 45m so there’s something for everyone to have a go at.

Please choose level 1 for beginners or level 2 for more challenging abseils at the point of booking.

The best venues are near Ambleside, Coniston or Keswick.

We usually use the stunning and historic slate quarries and often meet groups at the Brittania Inn in Elterwater, Langdale.

We’ll then head to the best venue choice for the day.

We will send you directions on a PDF at point of booking.

Half-day sessions run as follows:
Morning 9:30 am to 12:30 pm – Afternoon 1:30 pm to 4:30pm. That’s three full hours of activity.

Full-day sessions run as follows:
9:30 am to 4:30 pm. That’s seven full hours of activity.

We realise how valuable your time is and this reflects in our attention to giving you a full session. We always get to the meeting venue early, arrange our kit and make sure we are ready to go. This enables us to optimise the contact time with you, giving you real value for money and attention to your experience.

Half-day activities are really fun and do combine very well with other activities. E.g. many people book rock climbing or abseiling in the morning and ghyll scrambling or canyoning in the afternoon.

These half-day combinations and our all-day sessions can be viewed here: Mix n Match options on this page here.
