Blue Mountains Rock Climbing & Abseiling

Duration | 8 Hours

This tour runs from April to September and has been designed as an introduction into the vertical world of rock. All day adventure includes lunch and equipment. We cater for all levels and experience.  


  • National Park fees
  • Nationally qualified and highly experienced instructors
  • All technical equipment and instruction (abseil gear, wetsuit, waterproof backpack, climbing shoes, harnesses, helmets and ropes)
  • A waterproof camera
  • Scenic picnic lunch

We start the day with a smallish 5 metre abseil. If you have abseiled before this abseil gets you back in the swing of things. If you have never abseiled before it teaches you the technique of abseiling

From here we head straight on to 15 metre abseils which you can do a couple of times.

Then with your instructors explaining each step, you progress through to our 30 metre adrenaline pumping overhanging abseil.

After our famous lunch we start the afternoon with a lesson on rock climbing techniques before completing several single-pitch climbs.
