abseiling. Dictionary definition- to lower oneself down a rock face using a double rope.

Basically. You can abseil down buildings, rock faces, anything.
You have a helmet on and harness, which are straps which support you These are connected to a rope secured to the top of the building or rock face. You then walk backwards and over the edge of the building or rock face and the rope supports you so you can walk down. You are totally safe at all times.

Hope this helps :)
