TRIP DETAILS

This two-pitch abseil will test your nerves every step of the way. With a 2000m canyon below your shoulder adrenaline is pumping and the views are breathtaking.

After a short practice on the ground and a refresher on how to use the descender, we gear up, man up and take a leap off the edge.

The first abseil is a shorter 35m and acts as a warm-up for what’s coming next. Take a peek down, on a sheer rock face and kilometres of empty space beyond, as you step off the edge and make a 150-meter controlled descent on to the lower ledges. This abseil is so big it’s hard to take it in. It takes some mental toughness to not lose your cool here.

This is still just the beginning though, once down we have the next task ahead, and that’s to get back up. We follow the Via Ferrata route all the way up to reach our starting point.

We will have the packed lunch with us and will eat, it at one of the rest stops along the way.
