Outdoor Update and Caving in Yorkshire

Another busy weekend here at Rock Steady Adventure sorting kit for this week’s activities – including the purchase lots of new caving gloves as demand for exploring underground takes off with a bang!

Keep an eye on our facebook page for updates on what’s new for adult groups, including some new activity’s and some exciting new locations, and also what’s new for school groups that can really develop young abilities in the outdoors and help progress these aptitudes into important life skills.

There’s been a few enquiries from smaller groups this week so we’ll post the dates on our website and the Facebook page events incase any other small groups want to take advantage of the offers.  Our events are normally exclusive for a group – but if you’re happy to share then we’re happy to facilitate that – just check the website for details of open courses – or contact us to arrange exclusive group outdoor adventures.

York City Abseil – a soaring success

Twenty-five employees took part in a hairraising bonding session as a conference ice breaker for York based holiday park company Park Leisure.

Park Leisure teamed up with York Adventure Company Rock Steady for the eight-storey abseil down the side of the Park Inn Hotel in North Street.

Miles Dewhurst, 39, a director of Park Leisure, said: “We wanted something different and so decided to hold a conference with a twist, something that you don’t hear about every day.”

The event was covered by the York Press – see the link for details of the event on their website and contact Rock Steady Adventure through their website to arrange a great ice breaker for your next conference in Yorkshire, or to plan team buliding activities.

February Update

It is still a very busy period at Rock Steady Adventure, despite the cold weather.

We have just completed lots of risk assessments and method statements for forthcoming events, plus updates for our standard adventure activities too.

We really enjoy coming up with bespoke experiences to suit unique requirements – and are having a lot of fun putting some tremendous challenges together for events starting in the next few weeks. We are very excited about our recent discussions regarding a mobile zip-wire – so if time is short we can bring the buzz to you rather than bring you to the buzz. We’ll have more news on that idea in action soon, plus an adventure quest with a very different twist, and strategic orienteering  that gets the adrenalin pumping.

Our standard offer still gets lots of attention too – and often our range of regular adventures such as gorge walking, coasteering, mountain biking and rock climbing, can be tailored to exactly suit your groups’ requirements.  We’ll keep this blog updated during this busy time, but also like our facebook page for more information out outdoor activities in Yorkshire.

LRO Spring Adventure Driffield – no 4×4 Driving Yorkshire?

According to the organisers of the Landrover Owner International Spring Adventure Show at Driffield the 4×4 off roading event has been “cancelled due to lack of interest”.

We’ve driven the military testing course close to the show ground on many occassions and it’s great!  Granted last year was rather dry and the lack of a natural water course meant the local farmer had to ferry bowsers of water in – but every other year the course has been brilliantly muddy with some really testing hill climbs.

We’re waiting for clarification from LRO’s Editor on what’s happening at the Driffield Landrover Show this year as it’s hard to believe that the show can survive as a viable event without the lure of a great off road course.

Conference Ice Breaker – Abseil York

We were recently approached by a large Yorkshire based company to provide an adrenaline fuelled conference ice breaker for 25 of their top flight sales team.

The brief was broad in that it had to take place within 20 minutes of York City Centre (where their conference takes place) had to be exciting and there was a maximum of three hours before the delegates had to get on with the more serious business of their sales conference.

Of the outdoor adventure options proposed the corporate customer quickly selected an eight floor abseil down York’s tallest hotel. York City Centre Abseil


As with most pictures it’s really hard to get the scale across – these were taken last week when we finalised the activity’s risk assessment prior to the imminent abseil and the team that did it assure me it’s a long way up (and down!) even for those very used to rock climbing and abseiling.
