Ideal for the entire family, you don`t need to be an athlete to gain tremendous knowledge, skill, and confidence in just four days. If you are fearful of heights, this is the course for you because you will be exposed to increasing heights only at a pace which is comfortable for you.
At the conclusion of this exhilarating course, you will understand and be able to confidently use a wide array of equipment found in the world of ropes and rappelling. You will be confident in selecting and using the correct gear, maintaining and protecting your equipment, tying knots, setting "bomb-proof" anchors, establishing belay stations, communicating as partners, judging risks, and of course, lots and lots of rappelling.
Lecture Topics Include:
Lectures include safety in all aspects of rappelling, types of materials used in manufacturing the equipment, care and storage of your gear, the physics of rappelling, equipment specifications and weight limitations, rope properties and selecting the proper one for the given situation, tying proper and strong knots, setting anchors, rappelling and belay devices, and understanding the communication and relationship between rappeler and belayer.
You will experience repetitive exercises to ingrain the skills described in the lectures, multiple rappels from various heights on Front Sight`s 55-foot rappelling tower, and problem solving (ascending, freeing stuck clothing, lowering, mechanical advantage, and a self-rescue "Skills Test").
