About

What's Involved?

Our Brand New 'Big Abseil in the Dark' event is a thrilling night-time abseil challenge during either Sunset, Dusk or Nightfall.  Experience the rush of Abseiling 150ft down one of the West of Scotland's most celebrated monuments under the stars as you gaze out across the twinkling skyline. The world renowned mighty Titan Crane, is located on the banks of the River Clyde in Clydebank, a short 15 minute drive from Glasgow City Centre.

Access to the top of the crane is by a fully accessible glass lift, 150 feet up to the top.

*No previous experience is needed to take part: it’s suitable for most people over 16 years of age; however, parental consent is required for 16 & 17 year olds. Our team of highly skilled instructors will make sure your night-time abseil experience is memorable from start to finish.   All abseil equipment will be provided with everything you need to make your abseil safe and enjoyable.

You must contact us by calling 0300 1212 999 or by emailing events@chss.org.uk ASAP, to let us know you would like to abseil with others at the same or similar time. We will always try our very best to get you abseiling in the same group, but only if requested.

*Our aim is to make the 'Big Abseil in the Dark' as accessible as possible, however, if you are aware of any pre-existing medical conditions/history which could in any way affect your ability to take part safely in the event, including climbing up to the abseil point if the lift should be out of action, and abseiling itself, it is essential that you seek advice from your doctor. You then must only take part in the event if you have been advised by your doctor that it is safe for you to participate.
