Calling all thrill seekers! After a hugely successful first year, the abseil is back!

Do you feel like you’re up to the challenge? Starting with a tyroleon traverse between the 45ft high iconic Ilkley Moor boulders, followed by an adrenaline-inducing 50ft abseil down ‘the Cow’!


Your £175.00 sponsorship could enable our community team to visit a family in their own home, offering practical and emotional support where they need it as well as providing a bereavement counselling session to a family in need of support.

How it works

Our outdoor adventure gurus from the Yorkshire Adventure Company will be there to guide you and instruct you the whole way through this epic challenge. You don’t need any specialist equipment or previous experience to take part, just sensible outdoor clothing and footwear. We will provide the rest.

Children as young as eight can participate but need to be able to fit into the harness which is a minimum waist size of 40cm, leg size 30cm.There is no upper age limit but please note a weight limit of 18 stone due to the harness restrictions.

There will be four sessions throughout the day, once you have signed up you will be sent your arrival time along with other key information. Please note, you will be in groups of up to 18 people so there may be some waiting time.
