What exactly is abseiling ?
Whether above ground or underground, abseiling is having lots of fun sliding down
a rope under control, but to be really cool you have to get your pronunciation right
too, so please pay attention....there will be a test afterwards ! :-)
In German "Seil" = rope (pronounced SILE not SAIL)
& "Ab" = go down. Americans have to be different, so
they use the French word "rapelling".
    Providing you can say it properly, abseiling on the local crags
    or from disused viaducts over fast flowing rivers below is
    definitely one of Peak Activities safest and most popular activities,
    It's suitable for people of all ages and fitnesses.
    We'll provide everything you'll need to have a safe and fun filled time.
    Our nationally qualified staff can arrange sessions all year round.
    Morning, afternoon and early evening sessions are possible.
    Abseiling is suitable for down-to-earth novices of all ages.
    We often use abseiling on our highly acclaimed
    tailored team building projects and confidence building tasks
    designed and run by our Chartered Institute of Personnel
    & Development CIPD Qualified consultants.
