Rock Climbing & Abseiling.

Enjoy Indoor And Outdoor Climbing Adventures In Herefordshire And The Beautiful Wye Valley.

Herefordshire has several challenging rock formations for beginners and the adventurous climbers. The popular Symonds Yat Rock is great for rock climbing and abseiling enthusiasts with spectacular views of the River Wye.

Recent advances in climbing equipment have made rock climbing an extremely safe activity. Professional instructors will fit your harness and helmet and start you on an easy route to gain confidence. You are encouraged to look for handholds and foot placements. You will also be taught the basics of tying-on, belaying and the climbing calls needed to communicate with your climbing partner.

What goes up must come down…… You can’t beat abseiling down a sheer face or gentle slope. As you descend you can marvel at the stunning views. Rock climbing encourages co-operation and mutual support, and you will enjoy a physical, energetic activity, so it’s great exercise too!

For those who have tried climbing and abseiling then why not book up for the Tyrolean Crossing at Life Changing Activities? It is a cross between horizontal abseiling and a slow zip wire over a huge drop. Not only do you have to get everyone across, but you will also be involved in building the Tyrolean Crossing as well. There is nothing more adrenaline pumping than stepping off the edge of a cliff attached to ropes that you have tied yourself.

Why not try a climbing holiday in the Wye Valley, on limestone which offers some excellent steep climbs with positive holds. During this climbing holiday, you will have the opportunity to improve your climbing skills and technique whilst making the most of the breath taking, panoramic views of the Wye Valley. This Wye Valley climbing holiday is an experience you will never forget and will hopefully open the door for you to have many more climbing adventures.
