Tackle the Topping

A woman abseils down the rock face at Roseberry Topping

We've teamed up with specialist outdoor activities company Pinpoint Adventure to offer abseiling events at Roseberry Topping this spring and summer.

The event is suitable for beginners and families with children aged eight and over, a great introduction to an exciting activity. 

" This is a chance for people to experience Roseberry Topping as they never have before. Thousands of people hike to the top every year, but only a handful will get to abseil down the rock face. It’s a bit of an adrenaline rush, but the guys from Pinpoint Adventure give you the courage to do it. You know you’re safe in their hands."

" About  a  month  after  my  70th  birthday  I  had  spotted  the  abseil  on Roseberry’ s  Facebook  page.  I signed up online… The abseil experience was fantastic…. What a marvellous day out. Such an adventure!"
