Over The Edge: Long Rope Rappelling-Presentation & Demonstration

What do the caves of Virginia, the New River Gorge Bridge, Mexico's Cave of the Swallows, and Yosemite's El Capitan have in common? Mike Broome and Lisa Lorenzin have rappelled all of them, and will share their stories and photos along with an overview of the gear and techniques used for rappel and rope ascent, at distances over twice the height of the Empire State Building. Afterwards, they will demo the gear, and you'll have a chance to try it on yourself! $5/Member, $8/Non-Member.
