About the Course
Did you know that rappelling causes the most accidents in the climbing world? That's because rappelling can be tricky and dangerous, especially if you don't have the correct setup! Our rappelling course is perfect for sport climbers, trad climbers, multi-pitch climbers, canyoneers, or anyone who thinks rappelling is just good fun!
In the Rappelling Course, we will cover self-tethering, rigging an extended rappel with a backup system (friction hitch), fireman's belay, rope management, and how to throw your ropes without them getting tangled in the wind.
Rates for Instructional Courses
In efforts to make our instructional courses more accessible and affordable for aspiring outdoor climbers, we have a special discounted instructional rate of $330 for up to 3 participants. For groups of more than 3 climbers it is an additional $110/climber. Climbers are encouraged to bring their own gear to practice with, however, Stone Adventures will provide any needed rock climbing equipment at no extra cost. All courses are 6 hours long, taught by a full time professional rock climbing guide and the curriculum is up-to-date with the standards of the Professional Climbing Guide Institute (PCGI) and American Mountain Guide Association (AMGA). Last but not least, the courses are held outside in beautiful Joshua Tree National Park!
