Phase 3 in the Rappelling sessions:
I'll bring a rope, you bring a good grip!

We're going rappelling at Allenbrook. It's time to put that knowledge to work and we hope the weather is dry. Plain and simple...I'll be bringing a 70m rope (plennnnnty long enuf for Allenbrook) and giving a refresher in the parking lot to all of those who have attended my Rappelling Basics Learn events and go over safety briefing and what's to be expected once we venture to the edge!

I will demonstrate the Swiss Seat/Hasty Harness set up again, the South West Africian style and even venture in on how the ATC Guide works as a self-belaying device when you're top roping alone.

I will also expect everyone that attends this to know their basic climbing knots, friction hitches, and have their own gear...I have some extra gear, but it really needs to be your own.

For safety purposes I will be top belaying for folks and/or from below. Once I get you all comfy with stepping off a perfectly easy cliff to walk around, we venture into the solo rappelling with an auto lock, then just your rappel tube/ATC!

YES this was posted for Sunday A.M. - but rain looks highly likely and and do not wanna break out my dry rope -
so it's on for S-A-T-U-R-D-A-Y!

Your safety is paramount - I love to joke around, but once we get near those rocks it's game time. 

If you plan to attend and have a rope please let me know, 8 people and one rope is kinda like sitting in ATL traffic, so I am banking on another member attending (or 2) that have ropes. More the merrier.
