Rappelling is an important skill to learn in becoming a well rounded climber. Rappelling is often required for Sport and Trad climbing in order to descend from a climb. Rappelling may also be the only or more prudent means to access the bottom of a cliff to start a climbing route.
The course itinerary dissects the intricacies of rappelling into clear topics. The day will consist of a mix of ground school and vertical school. The Instructor will conduct global demonstrations and the climbers will in turn apply the skills and techniques. The goal is for you to gain confidence in setting up a rappel line and rappelling down the line using the skills and techniques reviewed in detail throughout the course.
