Waterfall Rappelling

 This course is designed for beginners and more experienced folks looking for an amazing adventure in New England.  We will meet at the Lafayette Place Campground Parking Lot in Franconia, NH at 9am. After our introductions, we will fill out our waivers and get geared up for the day.  We will then begin our adventure with an easy/moderate 1.2 mile hike in.  We will pass several smaller falls on our way, with a few chances to take a dip in the pools at the base of the falls.  Once we arrive at Cloudland Falls, we will get into our harnesses and helmets and then set up our ropes.  Each participant will get a few chances to rappel the falls, while being backed up on a second rope by a guide.  After our rappels, we will hike back to our cars where we will say our goodbyes.  The day usually ends around 3pm.
