The controlled descent of a vertical drop, such as a rock face, using a rope.

First the general safety talk, how to use the carabiner clips, how to climb up the ladder, what to do at the top, etc.

Yes, I’ll let this very clever lady hook me up correctly before taking the plunge over the side.

Hey, this isn’t so bad, all of my weight is supported by the harness, I just have to let the rope go through my hands.
