Are you new to Rappelling, Climbing or Belaying?
If you answered yes to any of those, sign up now....
Groveway Park is open after sunset and the tennis/pickle ball courts are lit up like NYC in late December! After work I will host an Urban Rappelling, Belaying & Knots class on a short, man-made wall. This will give new rappers and climbers the safe opportunity to test personal gear, test different gear and be safe while doing all of that outdoors. The wall I have recon'ed is only 12' tall at most, and stands at an 80° angle, so we can easily scale, rappel and "self-belay" on this surface.
There's a series of bleachers nearby that we can stage gear, ropes and such so everyone can see different ways to tie in, rappel, and test knot tying skills. I'll have at least 1 rope, 2 ATCs, 1 ATC Pilot, 1 rap ring, 2- prusik loops, 2 harnesses, 1 Swiss Seat/Hasty Harness and of course there's always the world famous South (WEST) Africian set up at the ready.
This will also give ANYONE that is thinking of joining me/us on future climbing and rappelling events a bit of extra time on the lines, so your comfort and confidence are elevated!
SAFETY FIRST! It's only a few feet up...but we'll engage the event as if we're on a 100' slab!
You do not need to have climbing or rappelling knowledge or gear (yet) you'll be fine...c'mon out. If you do and you need a re-fresher...c'mon out.
|How to Get There:|
We will meet in the upper parking lot at the Groveway Park area above the Roswell Aquatic Center- look for the Lil Sasquatch :P then we'll all head over to the proposed "wall."
