Beginning at Bunkhouse at 8 a.m., novice rappellers take 30 minutes to be outfitted with necessary rappelling equipment, including helmets and ropes, before taking a 25-minute drive into the White Mountains. From there, a half-mile walk lead groups to a 100-plus-foot waterfall, where they'll have ample time to rappel the picturesque cascade up to three times. To ensure safety, participants have the option of walking down at any point along the waterfall, and an instructor mans a second rope attached to each person during his or her descent. The excursion ends around 3 p.m.
It seemed inevitable that the owners would found Northeast Mountaineering, as both grew up in central Massachusetts and both have ascended an array of local and faraway mountains, including Mt. McKinley. With another experienced climber in tow, Northeast Mountaineering's trio of climbers share their passion for the outdoors with pupils during climbs up Mt. Adams, Mt. Washington, or custom trails forged by their pet mountain goats. They also orchestrate trips to Ecuador to climb the second-highest mountain in the country, the 19,347-foot Mt. Cotopaxi. As certified Wilderness First Responders, each guide is dedicated to safe climbing techniques, which they instill in students during courses that are tailored to all skill levels.
