Intro to Rappelling

 This course is designed for beginners and more experienced folks looking for an amazing adventure in New England.  We will meet at the Artists Bluff Trailhead in Franconia, NH at 9am. After our introductions, we will fill out our waivers and get geared up for the day.  We will have a easy half mile hike into Artist's Bluff in beautiful Franconia Notch.  After a brief talk on basic safety procedures, we will set up our ropes and begin to rappel.  Each rappel is backed up with a second rope controlled by a guide, so you can sit back and enjoy the ride.
