Want to learn the basics to Abseiling...aka Rappelling - Safely? YES!
Don't have climbing or Rap gear? No problemo!
Do you have your own climbing gear? Cool!
Do you want to expand your knowledge of the sport? YES!
Well c'mon then...this interactive, GROUND-based training will be a great way to get an idea of rappelling without any life threatening risks.
I'll be going over some knots and such related to basic rapping, but not a super deep dive. Closing the system and anchors.
I'll be covering how to make a climbing harness out of 1" webbing and a carabineer
|How to Get There:|
Roswell Visual Art Center
Meet in the parking lot by the Roswell Visual Art Center, or just look for the "Lil Sasquatch" - see the GPS link for an idea where this is...it's near the pond area.
Rappelling is the most dangerous aspect of outdoor climbing - anytime you can "walk off" a mountain, you should! (* to answer that earlier question above).
I will be posting this once again at a later date - but before my Waterfall Rappelling event in March.
