Canonteign Falls Abseil

24 September 2017

Start Time: 9.00am

Location: Devon

An abseiler taking on the Canonteign falls
  • Registration fee: £30
  • Minimum sponsorship: £150

This is your chance to abseil 220ft down England's highest waterfall, Canonteign Falls! The waterfall is situated on the edge of Dartmoor's National Park, in the heart of Devon's Teign Valley, offering some of the most spectacular waterfall and woodland scenery in Devon.

No experience is necessary however we must emphasise that this is an extreme challenge. You will need to be fit to take part as the day includes a 15-20 minute walk up a steep ascent. You must be confident on your feet to be able to get to the top of the abseil and climb over a fence. 

You will be provided with full instruction from a trained provider, and also given a wetsuit to wear for the abseil.  All on-the-day information will be included in your fundraising pack which will be posted to you after you have registered.

The views are spectacular, the challenge is terrifying, the cause rewarding. Are you up for it?
