The easy, fun way to come down

Sunset Rappelling

Evenings from $65/person

Rappelling (a.k.a. sliding down a rope) is a bread-and-butter skill for any climber, mountaineer, or canyoneer. Devils Lake is chock-full of gorgeous cliffs in a great variety of heights, so it's a fantastic place to learn and practice rappelling.

This course teaches you how to build your own rappel anchor, set up the ropes, and rappel 20- to 100-feet (you choose!) on your own, under your guide's supervision. Participants love learning and using new skills in such a short time period. A great date idea.

This is a 2.5 to 3-hour course we love to do in the evenings as a sunset trip. Other times may be available; please inquire.
