Rappelling on the Niagara Escarpment

Equinox Adventures provided the equipment and training to allow us to descend the steep rock face of the escarpment at Rattlesnake Point Conservation Area. With a crest higher than the Himalayas, actually it only seemed that way when hanging from the ropes, we work our way over the edge of the exposed rocks and step out onto the vertical wall of the wall of fractured limestone cliff.

Not falling was my favourite part of the adventure. Second favourite was the excitement of climbing down the rock wall, strapped down with a secure harness and two thick ropes that helped me not fall.
