rappelling class for canyoneering - September 24, 2008
Never tried it? Did it once, but don't remember much? Just need a little refresher? Where ever you may be, this is your chance to learn how, how to do it better, or to feel more comfortable and be safer, on rope. You will need a harness, a descender, a couple locking carabiners, and a helmet. I have a few extras I can loan out if you don't have one, or can't borrow one, but make that arrangement ahead of time to make sure there are enough to go around. After we get by the basics, and you feel comfortable on rope, we will work with different ropes and descenders, to make you more versatile and proficient. The Dogwood picnic area is one mile up BCC canyon, on the right. Park along the road just past the entrance to the Dogwood picnic area, and then walk across the bridge and up canyon thru the area, the wall is about 50 yards up stream past the last picnic table. Please sign up with me via email so that I will know in advance how many people are coming. The class is now full, if you haven't signed up before now, you will need to wait for the next one in the spring.
