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.
