Rappel Workshop

Sponsored and hosted by San Juan Mountain Guides who will conduct the workshop.

Come out Thursday late afternoon to practice/learn how to rappel or to improve your current skills. We will have different types and diameters of ropes set up ( 8mm Firewire, 9mm canyonline, 9.2 mm dual sheath) and different types of rappel devices (figure 8, totem, piranha, ATS) to use. We'll use them to discuss safety and practice basic techniques used for canyoneering.
If you have any technical equipment (helmet, gloves, harness, descenders, ascenders, ropes) bring it. If you don't have any that's ok, I'll have several different type of gear you can borrow and practice with to see what you like best.
