MSV Leeds Abseil

A fantastic 269feet / 82metre abseil down one of the tallest buildings in the north of England.

Conquer your fears, embrace the challenge. No previous experience or training necessary.

What's it like?

You arrive on the day and sign in. You’re briefed and kitted out before being taken into the building and led all the way to the top. That’s 269 feet – or 82 metres. 
You step out onto the roof and feel the rush of the wind and surge of adrenaline as you survey the amazing views across the city of Leeds.

You wait your turn. You’re strapped in. You edge slowly backwards until you reach the edge. You pause, look down, swallow hard, and then step over the edge and begin to abseil.

As your confidence grows you do a few bounces and embrace the amazing experience until you reach terra firma. The Red Cross team and watching crowds cheer you every bit of the way.
