If climbing up a cliff isn’t for you… perhaps rappelling down a cliff is!  Rappelling with NC Outdoor Adventures is a fun and exhilarating wilderness adventure, tame enough for families new to the outdoors, and exciting enough to never be forgotten. An intro rappelling day can be customized for anyone, from those with no experience to those seeking larger thrills or even those preparing for canyoneering objectives. Once you book your guide will reach out to discuss your day and trip goals.

During our rappel clinic at NCOA, we will teach you how to set yourself up on rappel, proper body positioning, and proper rappelling techniques. You will get to rappel 40 – 120-foot cliffs, high above the Linville Gorge in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina. Our rappels feature unique chimneys and rappelling into a small cave for those feeling more adventurous!

If you’re feeling a little nervous, don’t be, our professional guides will coach you through the toughest moments with easy-to-follow instruction as well as a controlled safety line, ensuring a slow and smooth descent.

For more experienced guests, we also offer specific programs for climbing-oriented rappelling education, from setting up rappelling anchors to rescuing yourself when your rope is too short or damaged.
