If you enjoy high level excitement then why not abseil and step boldly over the edge of a near-vertical rock face?
Abseiling is a classic outdoor adventure challenge, which anyone can enjoy. You do not need to have experience in abseiling to enter this vertical world, just a desire to overcome a natural fear of heights and give it a go. The feeling of achievement when you reach the base of the cliff is ample reward.
Abseiling is basically a controlled free-fall, where friction is exerted on the abseil rope through a metal descending device (usually a figure-of-eight or a ladder rack). You have total control of the rate of descent by holding the abseil rope. Strength is not required, just good abseil technique, which qualified instructors can teach you in a couple of hours.
Anglesey Adventures use a number of locations throughout North Wales, abseiling over everything from bridges, old quarries, dams, and sea cliffs enabling us to cater for everyone’s threshold. Thrill seekers also have the option of Adventure Coasteering, which includes abseiling over 150ft over the lip of a sea cave followed by a session of coasteering and rendezvous with a high powered rib, for our ride back to base (Adventure Coasteering requires a minimum of 8 participants aged 14+).
The 'Big Ab' at Breakwater Country Park is a popular location to hold charity abseil events and Anglesey Adventures work with the charity Parkinson's UK, where particpants can sign up with them for just £10, to do the 'Big Ab' and raise funds for the charity, further details are available from the Parkinson's UK website.
