As seen on BBC 2's Robson Green's Weekend Escapes

The only way is down!

As seen on the TV show Robson Green’s Weekend Escapes, where we provided Robson with an abseil of the iconic and fantastic Ilkley Cow. This venue provides an amazing view up and down the Wharfedale valley and on a clear day it is possible to see Ingleborough, one of the Yorkshire 3 Peaks.

If you would like to follow in the footsteps of Robson, and trial the amazing and thrilling abseil of the Cow & Calf, then book your slot below. The venue is not just great for abseiling, it is also great for walks on the Rombald’s Moor, where you can not just have fantastic views, but also see ancient rock markings and ruins across the moor of pre-historic peoples.

The abseil will include an 18m descent of the famous landmark, and you’re welcome to continue to watch friends and families descend as well. You will also be presented with a certificate of achievement for completing this memorable experience as a momento for years to come.


If you would like to use this opportunity to raise money for something that means a little more to you, why not raise money for charity. We use this location for a number of charity events, and definitely has the right amount of adrenaline charged expectation of a money raising activity.
