Waterfall Rappelling

October 18

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 12:00 am on Sunday, repeating until October 25, 2020

This adventure features 2 of our most popular courses (Intro to Rappelling and Waterfall Rappelling), taught in one day at a beautiful waterfall! Expect a full day trip!

Most people only get to experience waterfalls from either above, below or from afar. NC Outdoor Adventures brings you the chance to experience a waterfall from within. During this trip you will rappel Big Bradley Falls located about 30 minutes south of Asheville in beautiful Saluda, NC. This 180-foot waterfall rappel offers an exhilarating rappelling experience for adventurers of all skill levels.

Before rappelling Big Bradley Falls, all participants will undergo a short rappelling instruction session with our AMGA/PCGI (American Mountain Guides Association/Professional Climbing Guides Institute) certified guides (approximately 2 hours). During this time participants, will review the basics of setting up a rappel, getting in and out of the system, rappelling techniques and body positioning.

Who is this for? Anyone who is looking for a big adrenaline rush and is not afraid of heights! Participants should be ages 16+ and in good physical shape. Though not required we also recommend previous rappelling experience or taking one of our introductory rappelling courses.

Guest to guide ratio: 3:1
