So you’ve signed up and you’re raring to abseil the Titan Crane but what happens on the big day?

We’ll send you out your allocated abseil time well in advance of the event. This is the time you need to be at the crane to go through the safety training with the abseil staff. No previous experience is necessary, a dedicated team of expert instructors will be there to talk you through the basics of abseiling, including how to control the speed of your descent. You will be provided with all the abseil equipment necessary, all you need to bring on the day is comfortable clothing, sensible footwear and perhaps a few friends and family to cheer you on!

The running order usually goes smoothly but we ask that you are patient  since everyone controls the pace of their abseil some may be quicker than others.

There is no maximum age limit for the Titan Abseil. The minimum age is 15 and if you are under 18 we require the consent of your parent or guardian before you can abseil. There are no weight restrictions

We want as many people as possible to be able to take part in the Titan Abseil. Our abseil provider can accommodate participants with a disability, all we ask is that you contact us in advance to let us know your special requirements.

We’ve got an easy to use map of the Titan Crane location in Clydebank and instructions on how to get to the crane by bus, train and car.

Friends and Family

We want everyone to bring along supporters to cheer them on, the more the merrier! There are lots of great places to watch the abseil from the foot of the Titan Crane but space is limited at the top of the crane. Entrance to the grounds at the foot of the crane is free. Only abseilers and abseil staff will be allowed to go out onto the public viewing area at the top.

Our brave abseilers will not have to pay the entry fee to the Titan Crane. Members of the public have to pay a fee. Luckily we have discounted tickets available for the friends and families of our abseilers. Please contact us if you’d like to book cut-price tickets.

Safety

We’ve teamed up with the highly skilled and experienced Glasgow Climbing Centre to make sure the Titan Crane abseil is as safe and enjoyable as possible. We adhere to the British Mountaineering Counci’s participation statement:

The BMC recognises that climbing and mountaineering are activities with a danger of personal injury or death. Participants in these activities should be aware of, and accept these risks and be responsible for their own actions and involvement
Although all steps are taken to ensure the safety of participants, abseiling is an activity that contains an element of risk. Neither the operating company nor its employees shall be liable for any loss or injury to participants arising from their taking part in this activity, other than that required by law.

All abseilers must read, agree and sign a disclaimer form on the day before they abseil. This is to state they are happy taking part in the event and and that they are in good health.

We will have the appropriate number of first aid staff at the event and there will be ENABLE Scotland staff members on hand to help you out should you have any queries.
