The Mountaineers, 9am-11:30am

Assuming everyone is feeling solid with belaying, this lesson will focus on rappelling. 

We will do a demonstration of rappelling, and then weather permitting, will move to the outside walls to practice rappelling. If everyone is doing a good job, we will set up a rappel off the roof of the building to cap off the day.
