We did the ultimate extreme as a group needs a bit of a head for heights and the ability to trust the equipment and the guide who certainly new what they were doing I felt very safe at all times but was still a challenging experience. Highly recommended for a memorable day out.

Completed the Go Below Ultimate Xtreme and it was fantastic adventure day out. The course was very well designed, with a balance of climbing, zipping, traversing, abseiling, plus other fun bits! Our guides Pete and Sol were very professional, yet had a good sense of humour and knowledge of the history of the underground quarry. Would recommend experience in abseiling... More
