“I had tried zip lining and enjoyed it, but rappelling was even more exciting! I got to control my own descent from the top of the cliff, and Apex guides in Vail made it a super safe and fun experience. I’ll definitely be back for more!”                                                – Raymond Barry

Build confidence rappelling and have a great time doing it! Used to descend from the tops of rock climbs, the thrill of rappelling is now available by itself; no climbing needed.
