"It was amazing! I'll never forget that nerve-wracking moment of stepping over the edge but it was worth it for the huge sense of achievement when I got to the bottom." Charlotte - ArcelorMittal Orbit abseiler



How much does it cost to abseil?

There is a registration fee of £25 to secure your place and we ask for a minimum sponsorship commitment of £120.

Why should I abseil for Cats Protection?

Abseiling down the ArcelorMittal Orbit will be an experience you will never forget. Brave the drop and dangle in free space 80 metres above the ground!

Taking on a daring descent is a truly unforgettable experience. And when you raise money to help cats at the same time it can be even more rewarding!

I'll do it for the cats
