This adventure features 2 of our most popular courses (Intro to Rappelling and Waterfall Rappelling), taught in one day at a beautiful waterfall! Expect a full day trip!

Most people only get to experience waterfalls from either above, below or from afar. NC Outdoor Adventures brings you the chance to experience a waterfall from within. During this trip you will rappel Big Bradley Falls located about 30 minutes south of Asheville in beautiful Saluda NC. This 180-foot waterfall rappel offers an exhilarating rappelling experience for adventurers of all skill levels.

Before rappelling Big Bradley Falls, all participants will undergo a short rappelling instruction session with our AMGA/PCGI (American Mountain Guides Association/Professional Climbing Guides Institute) certified guides (approximately 2 hours). During this time participants, will review the basics of setting up a rappel, getting in and out of the system, rappelling techniques and body positioning.

Who is this for? Anyone who is looking for a big adrenaline rush and is not afraid of heights! Participants should be ages 16+ and in good physical shape. Though not required we also recommend previous rappelling experience or taking one of our introductory rappelling courses.

Climbers:

Our mission is to offer comprehensive yet simple instruction that instills confidence and self-reliance into every climber we work with. Our education philosophy revolves around teaching three concepts, Actions (Belay, ascend, descend), Tools (transition techniques, rescue techniques, lead techniques), and Applications (terrain, experience, and environmental considerations) through three simple questions: “what to do”, “how to do it” and “when to do it”. Our guides are professional, friendly, knowledgeable, and passionate about providing services to their community; and, through our work we support climbing access by donating 5% of our profits every year to the Carolina Climbers Coalition.

We offer:

  • The best student to instructor ratio in North Carolina; a ratio of 4:1
  • Comprehensive yet simple to understand instruction
  • The most competitively priced courses with the best paid guides in the industry
  • Continued support to all course alumni
