Rappel descent

Are you a real fan of abseiling? Are you an adrenaline junkie for the most amazing rocks? Cool... because you are part of our club of enthusiasts of this sport and maybe you didn't even know it. Abseiling is one of those adventures that lovers of the heights, strong emotions and outdoor exercise love but, as it is often the case in this type of sports, you must be careful if you are not an expert yet.

Abseiling practices are managed by organizations at a national level such as the BMC where you can find out about all the news and precautions you should take whenever you are going to organise a rebate trip.

In the UK there are many ways to practice it, through climbing, canyoning... Luckily for you, you can practice it together with other regulars of this sport with whom you can share techniques and plan incredible getaways that will condense all the adrenaline you need. The best options for abseiling in the UK? Here.


Still, the main thing to keep in mind when practising rappelling down walls is the following:
  • If you don't have enough experience or you are totally new to rappelling, never do it on your own. Always have a team of specialized and professional instructors to teach and guide you throughout the route and, if possible, even go to a climbing wall first to practice.
  • Make sure you carry all the necessary material with you, not without first having carefully checked that it is in perfect condition.
  • Be aware of the level of expertise you have and the scale of difficulty at which you will be abseiling. Almost all European countries use the French system which grades rappelling from level 1 to 9, with some sub-levels a, b or c from 6th grade onwards.
  • Being in a hurry is almost never a good thing, not even when it comes to rappelling. Take your time and, if you feel tired during the climbing, don't hesitate to stop, take a break and pick it up when you feel up to it.
What are you waiting for? Time to rappel like crazy!
