Extreme Quarry Adventure – Zip-Line & Rope Traverse, Abseil & Cliff Jump!


tyrolean1 304x203 Extreme Quarry Adventure

Committing to the zip-line

Welcome to a full day of adventure, taking in THREE breathtaking activities, all in one place.

Have you got the nerve to commit to an 80 meter Zip Line and Tyrolean Traverse across a deep, cavernous quarry; sliding part of the way at speed before pulling yourself along the rope to the other side… all the time trying hard to ignore the massive drop below you?

Can you then lean back over a 45m vertical drop and abseil down to the ground? Yes?

If you survive these challenges, do you then have the bottle left over to take on increasingly higher jumps into a deep quarry pool, before you escape via a dark network of tunnels?

Can you do it all a second time?!

Kit:  We will kit you out with all safety equipment such as harnesses and helmets, plus a wetsuit, windproof cag and buoyancy aids for the wet bit. All our kit is in excellent condition and is replaced regularly. All you need to bring is:

  • Full change of clothes and shoes, as you will get wet
  • Trainers or boots (Neoprene ‘water shoes’ are not appropriate, neither are Converse style slip-on trainers or Crocs)
  • Shorts to wear over your wetsuit – as they help protect our wetsuits and keep our costs low
  • Synthetic layer to go under your wetsuit (e.g. football shirt material, not cotton)
  • Fleece (to wear over your wetsuit in colder months)
  • Spare warm layer or jacket
  • Waterproof jacket and trousers if rain is forecast
  • Towel
  • Lunch a drink

Group sizes and ratios: Generally, we run private, bespoke sessions for just you and your party. At busy times you might be part of a larger group. If you want a private session, then just let us know (there is no extra cost). We put your safety first and as this is such a serious trip we always have at least two instructors with us.
