We thoroughly enjoyed our first abseiling experience with Jim Oakley Adventures. The equipment was first-rate and everything was carefully explained before we launched ourselves backwards off the cliff face. We can recommend Jim to anyone who fancies a go at this.

I was recommended Jim by another provider! He works for them also and I found the whole day great fun visting three separate climbing areas. One was near Dancing Ledge on a nice quarry right above the waves and cliffs. Superb kit, great views and coffee/chocolate. Then we drove to Portland and went to a great cliff overlooking the cliffs of Dorset in the distance. Then we climbed a large 28m rock that was jutting out of the sea..... again, excellant place and finished with an abseil down another spectacular cliff edge. Jim was fun, caring, safe and we had a good laugh throughout the whole day. Recommended in all areas. Thank you Jim. Matt Jones 08 Dec 12

I found JimOakleyAdventures through yumping and sent a request for a taster session.
He got back to us with 48hrs with good info and prices which included snacks and refreshments on the chilly Jan morning.
Sunny weather, informative Jim lead us down to the stunning location.
We had a challenging session with patience and learning new skills that steadily progressed onto the abseils at the end.
Jim has good coaching skills that made us feel comfortable during this new sport we were trying.
With lots of local knowledge and advice about other activities we felt "special" to have his attention for the morning.
The snacks and hot tea/coffee made the difference that other companies do not offer.
Thanks for a great morning.

I requested Jim for a four hour session as I have started to get into this sport after my girlfriend and I did a session on holiday. With great enthusiasm we progressed down to Dancing ledge with local knowledge and talks about the Jurassic coast and how it was all made provided us with interesting facts.
The session included bouldering, basic climbing knots, progressive. climbs culminating in two abseils. Making you feel at home with hot drinks and snacks made the whole session a joy to be in such a dramatic location with waves crashing on the cliffs nearby. Truely memorable with laughs and thrills throughout. Thanks Jim.

I found Jim Oakley advneytures on the yumping website under climbing and absiling and found the experience from the initial contact, communication to/from him efficient and the price was right for the ratios he had. A great experience with spectacular views and seas crashing nearby to add to the experience. Great fun.
