Rappelling

•   Rappelling is a mountaineering technique where one uses ropes and other equipment to descend a vertical or near vertical cliff face

•   We are the first commercial operators in Chennai to construct an artificial Rappelling wall and introduce people to this adrenaline sport

•   We have two identical Rappelling walls which are vertical and 50 feet high 

•   It neither requires previous experience nor special skills or any great levels of physical fitness

•   The participant is shown a detailed demo that covers the equipment being used, the correct technique of doing the activity and the safety processes in place

•   There are crew members at the top and the bottom of the wall to talk you through every step of the way

•   The Rappeller wears a harness, 2 sets of gloves and is also attached to a safety rope besides the main Rappelling rope with a Carabiner and figure of 8

•   The Rappeller and his equipment are checked at three points before he is allowed to do the activity

•   The Rappeller controls his own descent but is also backed up by our crew

•   We normally do "Reverse Rappelling" but if you are keen we can teach you other methods also

•   A session costs Rs 500/- per head, plus taxes.  This covers, equipment, crew and instructions

•   Rappelling is a great activity to use in our OBTs as it can be used to high-light a number of KRAs

•   When used in an OBT we structure the activity using a number of novel methods like configuring the scoring system, constraints on the resources/equipment/time, putting in a whole lot of terms of references which permit you or forbid you to behave in a certain way, or you may have to carry a cumbersome load, or do some other task along the way 

•   In an OBT its not the individual skill or effort in the activity that is important. What is of essence is the way in which the team deals with certain situations and issues

•   These reactions of the team are observed by the facilitator and are used to highlight the KRAs and bring out the lessons
