K2, the £6m multi-functional living and workspace complex in Hull city centre, has teamed up with an outdoor activity provider to offer abseiling from its rooftop – making it the first of its kind in Hull and the East Riding.
The urban abseiling events, which will be organised by York-based firm Lost Earth Adventures, will run every Saturday and Sunday morning from June 23rd. Group private bookings will also be available.
The collaboration with Lost Earth Adventures follows the success of the charity abseil held at K2 in March by scaffolding company Bambu, which raised money for PAUL For Brain Recovery.
Tom Langan, Manager at Lost Earth Adventures, commented:
“The charity event we were involved with in March was a great success and prompted the team at K2 to offer abseiling on a permanent basis. There are a number of outdoor activities available in Hull and the East Riding, but this will be the first in an urban environment. We have organised abseils down cathedrals, viaducts and towers, but this will be our first fixed, regular installation.
“It can often be tricky to find a good location for an urban abseil, but K2 provides the ideal venue. It has the perfect set-up and provides great views of the city and beyond.”
Mark Butters, Director at Tradepark, the developers behind K2, added:
“K2 has been designed to provide something very different for Hull’s city centre. We wanted to create a space that was multi-functional, and adding the abseiling from the rooftop certainly adds a new dimension. The views from our 13th floor are breathtaking and this is a great way for people to take them in. We’re confident the partnership with Lost Earth Adventures will be a huge success.”
