Join us to learn how to safely rappel! Rappelling is a required skill as you venture further and further off the ground. It is used frequently in self-rescue scenarios and when the descent from a route requires that you rappel. In order to to this safely, climbers must be familiar with how to set up a safe rappel and back it up! Though easily done safely, when done incorrectly rappelling is of high consequence.
