USA Event page!

Waterfall Rappelling - Round V

My place @ 4:30pm

First 4 RSVP's get a spot

A VERY special rappelling event. TOP SECRET.

Organizer: Chris Baker[masked]

Special Gear / Requirements: 

Warm weather wicking clothing (avoid cotton!), food/water as you feel is appropriate, bug spray, rappeling gear (harness, friction device, Helmet, short cord "Prusik" for backup, and leather gloves etc...), first aid, insulating layer, rain gear, water shoes (not flip flops or sandals), towel, dry set of clothing, headlamp & extra batteries + camera! 

Experience level: 

Participants must have rappelling experience and their own gear. We will not be able to swap out harnesses etc... Common sense navigating around the edges of steep and unstable cliff tops is also a requirement.  THIS IS NOT A SUITABLE BEGINNER TRIP. This areas has seen very bad accidents. Evacuation is a long process. This is not a guided event and no instruction should be expected. You must be completely proficient in rappelling and canyoneering. 

Very Important: 

As with any meetup event, you and you alone are ultimately responsible for your own safety. Please make a valid assessment of your own experience level. If you are unsure, feel free to ask questions either on the forum or privately.
