If climbing up a cliff isn’t for you… perhaps rappelling down a cliff is!  Rappelling is a fun and exhilarating wilderness adventure, tame enough for families new to the outdoors, and exciting enough to never be forgotten.

An intro rappelling day can be customized for anyone, from those with no experience to those seeking larger thrills or even those preparing for canyoneering objectives. During our rappel clinic, we will teach you how to set yourself up on rappel, proper body positioning, and proper rappelling techniques. You will get to rappel 40 – 120 foot cliffs, high above the Linville Gorge. If you’re feeling a little nervous, don’t be, our professional guides will coach you through the toughest moments with easy to follow instruction as well as a controlled safety line, ensuring a slow and smooth descent.

For more advanced rappellers, we also offer specific programs for climbing-oriented rappelling education, from setting up rappelling anchors to rescuing yourself when you rope is to short or damaged.

Who is this for? Anyone with a good sense of adventure. No prior experience needed. Ages 8 and up.

What to Bring: Bring a good pair of shoes to hike in, 2-3L of water, lunch/snacks, sunscreen, camera, small backpack, and when necessary, a rain jacket.

Dates: Monthly every first and third Saturday

We do offer climbing and rappelling events year-round. If you cannot find a date on the calendar that works with your schedule you can book a private date for an individual or group at our private day rates listed on our website.
