Rappelling practice at Papago Park

  • Jun 25, 2013 · 5:00 PM
  • Papago Park

We'll head up to Papago for some post-work rappelling. You must have your own harness, helmet, biners, and belay device. I'll bring the rope. Keep in mind that we might be hiking out after dark, so headlamps/flashlights are strongly encouraged.

      Isn't it unfortunate! Why can't that stuff just magically appear.

    Thanks for the invite, but I'll be in Dallas area on business and I have to say, what with the temps lately, not real interested in being out on the exposed rock with those kinds of temps.

    Hello! I'm new to the meetup group. I would like to come to practice with you guys. I plan to go to Zion in October for some beginner canyoneering (Subway, Keyhole) so I'd like to get some help and practice. I've only repelled once during ski patrol training (off lift towers) so I definitely need some more practice and maybe some tips. I have a harness, locking biner, and ATC but no helmet. Anyone know where I can rent or buy one for a good price? :)

    I have some "workhorse" ropes that you guys are welcome to use in case anyone is hesitant to use ascenders on higher end ropes.

    1 · June 6, 2013

  • Mike B.

    I may bring an extra practice rope if anyone is interested in ascending.

    2 · June 6, 2013

    • Stephanie

      I could always practice ascending!! I to have rope and will have it with me just in case. I need to work on going back and forth from ascend to descend.

      June 6, 2013

  • John B.

    Just a reminder to everyone, it is going to be hot. Bring plenty of water!

    June 4, 2013

  • Johnny C.

    I'll be late, probably around 630ish. Save some rope for me!

    Hi! Can I join if I don't have any rappelling experience? I do have climbing and belay experience, however.

    1 · June 1, 2013

    • John B.

      You are totally welcome to come out. These practices are good places to discuss tips and techniques. One word of caution though, this isn't meant to be an instructional class and there won't be instructors there. It is a great way to familiarize yourself with the process and other members, so please feel free to come.
