Aspire Adventure Activities were booked by Jane Stapleton to organise a weekend group adventure activity course for her husband, son and 2 of his friends on the 2/3 rd June 2018. The chosen activities were Orienteering and one of the most well known outdoor adventure challenges in the Peak District, The Millers Dale Viaduct Abseil.
Orienteering On Burbage Moor
Dave met the group at Burbage Moor in the Northern Peak District. Luckily the torrential rain earlier had passed before the start. The group were checked out for correct equipment and after a short walk to the summit where the superb views of the course came into view including the peaks of Carlswark and Higgar Tor which they had to ascend as part of the course.
The group were given two hours to complete the Orienteering course and after deciding upon suitable a route they went running off with JP (dad) in tow!
After 2 hours the group returned a bit soggy from navigating hilly terrain, bogs and some rocky paths. They and had accumulated enough points to receive their prizes. Well done chaps, good teamwork!
Abseiling at Millers Dale
Day 2 was the challenge of the Millers Dale viaduct abseil which the group were really looking forward to, but also apprehensive about. As we were the only ones at the viaduct when we arrived, the group had a choice of which abseil they would like to do, they decided unanimously to do the biggest abseil over the river.
After kitting the group out with helmets and harnesses and a short briefing volunteers soon came forward and down they went. After several photos and a few wet legs from going into the river, the team finally decided it was time for lunch at the famous Grindleford Cafe and then home.
Well done to JP and the boys for their fantastic enthusiasm which made it into a memorable weekend for all.
