Abseiling (German: abseilen, “to rope down”), or rappelling in American and British English, is the controlled descent down a rope in rock climbing, mountaineering, caving and canyoneering. The technique is used when a cliff or slope is too steep and/or too dangerous to descend without protection. We have several suitable abseil locations in Tasmania, including the world’s highest commercial abseil – the 140-metre Gordon Dam in south-west Tasmania.
