What You'll Do
  • Rappel 40 meters down a dam
  • Learn the finer points of rappelling technique
Overview
Rappel 40 meters down the Amden Dam! Learn to rappel independently with guidance from a qualified instructor. Climb meter by meter and notice your fears vanishing as you gain confidence. A unique experience to be enjoyed by all.
What to Expect
Rappel down the 40m high Amden Dam in complete safety, under the guidance of a qualified team leader. The wall is particularly beloved of school trips, but also good for office and company outings.

You will first be taught how to put on the rappel belt correctly, and what to take particular care of when climbing. Depending on the size of the group, up to 5 rappelling points can be set up at once – care for some friendly racing up a sheer rock face?

Climb over the railing, attached to the rope by figure 8 and karabiner. You feel your fear vanishing meter by meter and second by second. In the knowledge that the rope is completely secure, you can enjoy this unique and thrilling experience.

Even if you start slowly, you'll soon notice yourself picking up speed, as you begin to overcome your fears - a wonderful feeling. Already on your 2nd trip you'll be more confident, more able to refine your technique. A short, comfortable path leads back up to the top. You can rappel as many times as you would like.
