Support access to justice by taking on the UK’s highest freefall Abseil

Have you got a head for heights? We have 20 places for adrenaline junkies to abseil 262m down the ArcelorMittal Orbit on Saturday 26 March.

Wire and Sky provides trained professional instructors who give a comprehensive safety briefing and provide all the specialist equipment required before escorting you to the upper viewing platform at the ArcelorMittal Orbit. From there, you begin an exhilarating descent to the ground, taking in breathtaking 20-mile vistas across London, including iconic buildings such as The Gherkin, St. Pauls, Canary Wharf and Wembley Stadium, as well as the world-famous sporting venues of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

Take part as an individual, or sign up with friends. Groups of 5 will abseil every 30 minutes, with pairs descending together. If you want to take part with friends please let us know on the ballot form below.
