Repelling...what a great hobby!

Here are some pictures from our recent repelling outings. I've used pictures from two recent events to give you an idea of what we were doing.

The hike to the top of the face is the most brutal part of the day.

Facing down the 100' - 120' face is really cool. You can watch people all the way to the bottom.

Getting the gear on and off takes more time than repelling down the face. Top to bottm, it takes about 30 seconds to get down. Once you have a feel for the rope, you can bounce your way to the ground!

At the end of the day, we glide down with the gear, saving us about 1/4 of the hike.

The thing that makes the day so much fun, though, is getting to "hang out" with friends and enjoy God's beauty.

Ha, that's one sport you can have. Great views, but I'd probably hike back down the other way.
