An exciting full day rock climbing and abseiling experience for thrill-seekers, in the stunning Brecon Beacons countryside.
- Merthyr Tydfil (Mid Glamorgan)
- Gift Voucher valid for 2 Participants
Fancy yourself a bit of an Action Man (or woman)?...well, this is your opportunity to immerse yourselves in the great outdoors, and experience the thrill of traversing up and down some seriously cool rock faces in Wales' stunning Brecon Beacons!
Why start with a man-made indoor climbing wall, when you are surrounded by so many fantastic natural rock formations? With this 7 hour climbing and abseiling day, the entirety of the experience will be spent outdoors, getting to grips with the key skills and processes involved in real-life rock climbing. Once you have met with your group, and completed your health and safety briefing, you will be kitted out with all of the necessary safety gear. By way of easing you in, you will usually begin your morning session with an introduction to bouldering at a nearby quarry - here you'll learn the basics and get used to using your hands and feet correctly. As the day progresses, you will move on to tackle climbing the rock face. Depending on your confidence, your instructor will guide you through different heights and challenges - you'll also gain skills in abseiling, allowing you to journey back down the crags in style!
With modern equipment and highly skilled instructors on hand, you'll receive the best tuition possible, and are sure to leave the centre feeling completely exhilarated!
The rock climbing and abseiling introductory session in the Brecon Beacons is available throughout the year on both weekdays and weekends.
Please note that bookings in May, June and July can be tricky due to higher numbers of large group bookings, so please give plenty of notice.
