Learn to Rappel Class

Interested in learning to Rappel & Canyoneer?

Did the movie 127 Hours intrigue you?!

This rappelling class is a very basic introduction to rappelling, safety checks, communication and fireman belaying (bottom belaying). This class is in no way a substitute for the full Technical Canyoneering Course. This class will, however, provide you with an introduction to rappelling, safety checks, communication and bottom belays that can make taking the full course more beneficial.

We will spend the day rappelling at Stoney Point in Chatsworth.

Single strand on 8.3mm and 9.2mm static canyoneering ropes!

We will also bring our favorite descenders for you to use!

That’s all we’re going to do … all day. So …

  • If you don’t know how to rappel .. come learn.
  • If you want to try out different descenders and ropes .. come experiment.
  • If you know how to rappel .. come practice.

This Learn to Rappel Class will last all day .. 7am-2:00pm so bring lunch &water!  You will be required to sign a release of liability and assumption of risk. You may participate all day or for a few hours … it’s YOUR day.

Gear for this class will be provided (however, if you have a climbing harness, any kind of helmet [climbing, bicycling, kayaking, snow boarding, etc], a pair of gloves [mechanics, cycling, weightlifting, garden, etc.] … please bring your own!)  And feel free to bring any gear you have questions about … we’re happy to show you how to use your own descender and to answer any/all gear questions.

We will be scrambling around a lot as we rappel, scramble back up, rappel, scramble back up, rappel, scramble back up, etc. ….so wear some comfortable shoes with good ‘grip’ .. trail, running, approach shoes all work well (don’t wear rock climbing shoes). Bring sunscreen, sunglasses, maybe a hat, and clothes/layers appropriate for the forecast.

This Learn to Rappel Class is open to everyone .. so invite your friends, your teenage kids, your spouse to join!  If you’d like to organize a private event for your students, colleagues, friends or for a family reunion, just give us a shout!  This event also is a tremendous team-building activity!

The cost for this class is only $45 per person!!  The $45 is non-refundable but may be put toward a future rappelling class in the same calendar year if 30 days notice are given cancelling your participation on this date.  Read more company/course policies here.

What people are saying about this class:

“What a fabulous day! Great group of people and awesome instructor! You have got to meet Klaus! If you haven’t tried this, you’re missing out. Klaus is all about safety first, but teaches in a way that makes you count the seconds to rappel and canyoneer! I’d rate this as a 15 out of 10! Can’t wait to see what else he’s cooking up. Thanks to Jason for his assistance!”  -C- (Carmen B 2/2/13)

“Best Meetup I’ve ever been to.  What a great group of people .. Klaus encourages us all to support one another and we learned how to care for each others’ safety!  I look forward to more adventure and instruction!  Thanks Klaus, I loved every minute of it.”  -Lynda-

“Had a blast!  Met very cool people.  Klaus is a great instructor, super supportive and his assistant(s) are knowledgeable and patient!  Can’t wait to do it again.”  -Aurora-
