Climbing & Ab Seiling

Devon has a wide variety of climbing and abseiling venues that are suitable for beginner and expert alike, Chudleigh Rocks, The Dewerstone and Sheepstor to name but a few. Learning to climb and abseil in areas of outstanding natural beauty adds an extra dimension to this exciting activity.

Spend a full or half day session at the crag with your instructor who will introduce you to rock scrambling, traversing, climbing and abseiling as well as teaching the skills of spotting, belaying and  knot tying. There are a wide variety of climbing routes available on most of the crags that we use. Once the basics have been mastered on the shorter less technical routes your instructor can introduce your to some of the more advanced techniques  that will allow you to tackle higher grade climbs that rely on route planning, balance and nerves of steel.

Backwater Adventures also own a purpose built climbing and abseiling tower situated on a private estate on the eastern edge of Dartmoor for those wishing to spend a morning honing their climbing and abseiling techniques before heading off to the crag to put their new found skills into practice.
