Skills Practice: Advanced Rappelling

  • Nov 30, 2013 · 8:00 AM

This session will be conducted by one of our distinguished alumni (John "Snafu" Mueller) and will cover advanced topics on rappelling.  You should have attended the previous day's beginner rappelling session, or have comparable experience/training to attend this advanced session (contact me if you have questions about that).  It will be field work at an outdoor location and attendees will practice the material covered (yes, you will rappel).  You will need a helmet, harness, and a rappel device with a locking carabiner.  Let us know (via your answers to the questions) if you need us to supply that gear.

Please remember to answer the questions after RSVPing. If you are using a phone, the questions will not appear. Therefore, please check back again to answer the questions.

To participate in this outing, you must be a current, paid member of LVMC. You can obtain a membership via this link: The fee is $40 per year for a family/roommates or $30 per year for an individual. Please contact your organizer if you have any questions.

    Thanks to all the organizers who helped in the presentation and kept the group safe. A special thanks to Snafu for traveling all the way to Vegas to conduct the class. I learned allot and enjoyed a beautiful day with fellow rappellers.

      Yes, we may increase it, but a few cancellations may negate the need…we will see.

    advanced rappelling takes off from beginning rap clinic. we will instruct rap set-up, rope management, knots for tying ropes together, multi-rap scenarios simul-raps, and passing a knot on rappel. participants need proficiency in friction knots (taught in beginner clinic)
