That was definitely an experience!
Did I ever think I’d find myself rappelling down a 20-storey building?
But I was feeling good and confident before heading up…
Then I got to the roof. And many deep breaths were required.
And then it was go time.
It was definitely a slow, tiring process at the beginning – just getting the hang of the lever system. (If you try to go too fast, the mechanism locks in place so you have to reset it before you can move anymore.) Smart safety idea. But a challenge for sure!
Here I go…
There I am. A wee little dot.
I (eventually) made it down though!
Here’s footage of Gonzo making his descent. And I gotta say, the man’s got grace. Look at how smooth he is coming down the line!
Here’s a condensed – and very dramatic – video of my rappelling experience!
And some final thoughts on the adventure:
