Can we rope you in?

Challenge yourself in 2020 and experience the thrill of abseiling from a 140 ft building, taking in views of the beautiful town of Harrogate whilst raising funds for Yorkshire Cat Rescue!

Our abseil will take place at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Harrogate on Saturday 12th September, and will be hosted by 'Eight Point Two Adventure Challenge Events', who have many years experience of abseiling events.

All participants will be fully trained on the day by experienced staff and will be given an individual time slot but you will of course be very welcome to stay and cheer on your fellow abseilers!


There is a small registration fee of £25 to cover event costs and insurance, and each person will need to raise a minimum of £100 sponsorship.You will have until one month before the event to raise this, and we are happy to help you along the way with fundraising ideas.

Age and Weight Restrictions

Participants must be at least 15 years old but anyone under the age of 18 will need a parent or legal guardian to sign the consent forms. 
There is no upper age limit although we would recommend that older individuals consult their doctor if they have any concerns about their health or ability.                                     

We can accommodate people up to 18 stone in weight, but no more due to the restrictions on equipment and loads
exerted, although they may need to be fitted with extra equipment for their comfort. 


Eight Point Two Events insist upon the very highest standards in safety for all clients and staff taking part in activities. Abseil events involve an element of risk which makes them challenging, exciting and facilitates personal development however, the safety of everyone involved is an absolute priority and Eight Point Two ensures the level of risk is acceptable and appropriate safety standards are maintained at all times. All of the abseil instructors are qualified under the Mountain Training standards and hold First Aid Certificates ensuring the highest level of service is provided. All
instructors are passionate about what they do and focused on helping participants to enjoy themselves with friendly
coaching and smiles, all helping to create an unforgettable experience and perhaps overcoming a lifetime fear!

We look forward to you joining us at this exciting event whilst raising money for the many abandoned cats and kittens that need our help. Book early as places are limited!
