 Cave Rappelling      

This activity is designed for beginners. 

The activity begins with an instruction session.  A double belay (two-ropes – two staffers) is used.  All equipment is provided by Laurel Caverns.  Every participant is guaranteed at least two drops.  Since our rappelling cliffs are in the cave, rain is never a problem.

For groups of six or more, with a pre-paid appointment, a cave rappelling class is offered every Saturday or Sunday through the last weekend of October.

This class is for beginners. The first hour of class is in the Visitors’ Center. Then the class enters the lighted section of the cave and goes to a 40 foot cliff where, at least two rappels are given to each student. A double-belay is used so that, if need be, either of the two instructors can safely lower a student to the floor even if the student lets go of the rope. Since our rappelling cliffs are in the cave, rain is never a problem.

The cost for this class is $35 per person.

Participants must be at least 12 years of age.
