Guided by your instructor you will be tied in securely via two ropes your abseil line (static rope) which you will control and also a safety line which is controlled by an instructor! Okay now it’s time to stand on the edge. Adrenaline rush!
It’s all about mind over matter! If you gather the courage to travel down at speed, it’s a real adrenaline rush.
You are attached to 2 ropes remember, your abseil line and a safety line which is controlled by your instructor should you get a little too excited!
The point when your feet are on the edge, and you are looking at the ground 30 metres below with nothing separating you but thin air. You may think “What the heck am I doing?” This thought has popped into many heads – but once you start descending and get used to the feeling of running down a near vertical cliff, you’ll be running back to the top for another go, and getting faster each time.
