Burrington Combe - a perfect venue for youth groups and beginners with some genuinely hard options too!

Climbing & Abseiling Day

The climbing and abseiling day
is full of adventure and challenge.  It is possible to run both sessions at a single location but our recommendation is to climb at Burrington Combe and to abseil at Split Rock. Burrington has an excellent range of climbs with something for everybody, while Split Rock (near Wells) with its 25 metre vertical wall, is a superb abseiling venue.   The two venues are about 8 miles apart so it is necessary to drive between locations during the day.

This combination is ideal for most participants but some children (and adults) may find the 25 metre wall a bit too much!  More gentle abseiling can be done at Burrington if preferred.  Climbing is also available at Split Rock but there is less choice than Burrington Combe, and the climbs are less suitable for children.

Contact us to discuss the ideal venue combination for your group.

- we usually meet at 10.00, have lunch from 13.00 - 14.45.   The day finishes about 16.30.

Group size is usually a maximum of 8 but we can provide additional instructors to take additional groups.  Our maximum capacity is 40 persons.

Ages - youth groups from 8 years old, but younger children can participate in dedicated family sessions.
