Recently, I got the chance to rappel off a building 22 floors in downtown Pittsburgh, PA.
I got the opportunity to do so through the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s over the edge program. I raised enough funds to meet the threshold to rappel off a building for a great cause!
I’ve rock climbed before, albeit inside at gyms, but it gives you an idea and feel for a rappel. Much different though! The actual descent took a toll on your abs, core, and mental state as the weight was being pushed and pulled through midair with your supporting ropes.
Check out the video below to see my experience!
