Beginning Rappelling


After learning about equipment, safety and challenge by choice, you will first practice on the ground and then head to the top of the 40 foot tower. Once at the top, professional staff will make sure you are clipped in and you will rappel down the wall. Starting on lower platforms inside of the tower, you will have the opportunity to gain confidence and practice before moving up the tower and to the outside. Beginning rappelling is a great chance to learn new skills or brush up on old skills before heading to the advanced rappelling session.

Before or after your rappel session, don’t forget to visit the trading post for a water bottle, sunglasses, backpack and other fun souvenirs.
