The Scout cautiously steps over the edge of the rock cliff and the rope immediately tightens in the carabiner. Belay on, brake on, and a quick glance over his right shoulder. Jump!
That scene was repeated multiple times February 17, 2018 as each Troop 416 Boy Scout took turns rappelling down multiple size cliffs. The chilly, rainy weekend was made enjoyable through the fun of rappelling and a dessert cookoff that night.
In the photos, you’ll see not only the State Park rappelling, but also some rappelling training in the Christian Life Center at St. Marks United Methodist Church.
