If you like the idea of throwing yourself off the side of a wall during the stag weekend, then you are going to love this adrenaline pumped activity! For those who don’t know, abseiling is essentially an activity that climbers and cavers use to get quickly, easily and safely down from a pitch. Although not strictly a sport in itself, abseiling is certainly great fun. So grab a harness and prepare to feel like Jason Bourne lads!
Abseiling or Rappelling (as it’s also known as) is not actually a sport but more of a technique used by climbers to descend using a fixed rope. The reason it’s a stag do favourite is because it’s so much fun, not to mention pant wetting, nail biting and bloody dangerous. Abseiling requires specialised equipment and gear to ensure safety and minimise risk. These will be provided by the venue and they include ropes, descenders, carabiners, climbing helmet, gloves, knee and elbow pads etc.*

Wear shoes with good grip. If you have rock climbing shoes then wear those, if not then some trainers you don't mind getting scruffy will do. Clothing should be lose fitting and comfortable, but not flapping about. Don't wear anything valuable like expensive watches or chains for this activity.
Oh my god this rocks! I don't even like heights but once you take the plunge, not physically but mentally, and you're dangling 30 foot in the air with only a rope as your friend it certainly puts the wind up you. It was so scary I loved it and just wanted to do it again and again... like a human yoyo. - John (Stag Company customer feedback call)
