You’re standing on a perfectly stable ground. Everything inside you is telling you to stay where you are. Everyone else around you is saying “go for it!”
Your heart is racing, your palms are getting sweaty. You go through instructions again. You check your gear one more time. For the 6th time you ask your instructor “have you got me?”. Then you take a deep breath and – against all logic – you step off the edge, backwards, into the perfectly empty space, relying on a 11mm rope, a harness and a descender gear.
Scary as it sounds, rappelling is one of the greatest adventures which, unlike rock-climbing, doesn’t require special skills or prior experience. The real challenge is the mind!
For those with a thirst for adrenaline and a passion for the extreme, rappelling will give you the buzz you’re looking for.
