Abseil at Canonteign Falls

Saturday 15 and Sunday 16 July 2017
Canonteign Falls, near Exeter

This is a 220ft abseil 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.

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 15-20 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. 

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.

Raising sponsorship

Your entry fee only covers the cost of participation and therefore we ask you aim to raise as much as you can to help support short and precious lives.


How your sponsorship makes a difference
