How much does it cost?

Price is £40 per person for a ½ day session. We endeavour to get all clients at least 2 abseils. Some get as many as 5 but this depends on personal confidence and group progress.

If you want group exclusivity then you need to book for 5 or more. This is normally better if you have small children.

Groups get 10% discount for 10 or more and 15% for groups of 20 or more.If you have a group bigger than 30 or a charity etc. then call for special rates

What is abseiling?

Abseiling is a basic climbing technique to allow safe descent of steep rock sections.

Is it safe?

Abseiling is generally regarded as a low risk adventure sport. We have 10 years experience in outdoor activities and use only qualified, experienced instructors.

Do I need experience?

No previous experience is necessary. We take things at a pace you feel comfortable with.

What is a typical session?

A session will normally take a maximum of 3 hours and will vary on the overall ability of the group. We will endeavour to ensure that each client gets at least two abseils. This can increase with a competent group.

What do I do when I arrive?

When your booking has been confirmed you will be sent details and directions of where and when to meet. It is important that you print off a copy for your journey as SATNAV does not work very well!!

What can my friends and family do while I'm abseiling?

The Loggerheads Country Park is situated in the Clwydian Range Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Park has a visitor centre, a cafe and toilets and makes an excellent base for the local riverside walks. If you prefer the hilltops, Loggerheads is just a short distance from the highest point in the Clwydian Hills, Moel Famau. For more information about the attractions of the local area see the Loggerheads website .

What do I need to bring?

All climbing equipment is provided, but bring clothes that you don't mind getting a bit grubby and footwear that has good grip (i.e. not wellies!). Gloves are not necessary, but we do suggest bringing a waterproof coat if there's any hint of rain.

Where can I get accomodation?

There are B & B's, self catering and camping sites in the area please click here for further details.
