What is Rappelling?
A descent from a height, such as a cliff or wall, in which one slides down an anchored rope and applies friction to control one’s speed, either by means of a specialized device or by passing the rope under one thigh and over the opposite shoulder.
Why Duke Nose?
The rappelling part is the easy part, the real fun begins once you rappel down wiping off your panic sweats from your head, only to find that a 1000ft exposed cliff traverse awaits :)
