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. During our rappel clinic at NCOA, we will teach you how to set yourself up to 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.

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 advanced 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.

Who is this for? Anyone with a good sense of adventure. No prior experience needed. Ages 8 and up.

What to Bring: Bring a good pair of shoes to hike in, 2-3L of water, lunch/snacks, sunscreen, camera, small backpack, and when necessary, a rain jacket.

When: Daily Year round
