Canonteign Falls, Exeter
Event organiser:

Go over the edge for CHSW!

Take on this extreme challenge and abseil 220ft down England's highest waterfall, Canonteign Falls, on the edge of Dartmoor National Park, offering some of the most spectacular waterfall and woodland scenery in Devon.

We must emphasise that this is an extreme challenge and you will need to be physically fit to take part as the day includes a 15 to 20 minute walk up a steep ascent. You must be confident in regards to climb over a barrier at the top of the falls, dropping from heights and navigating water. The abseil is demanding so if you have a fear of heights and water, this may not be for you!

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.
