Rappelling

Hi does anyone have any suggestions for outdoor rappelling in Florida? Camp LaNoChe has a tower and I’ve read something about Sandy Hill but the camp itself did not get great reviews. Has anyone done a rappelling with their troop that they can share their experience, locations, etc. Thanks!

If you’re in the central Florida area, check out Aiguille Rock Climbing Gym (http://www.aiguille.com/) The staff is great and they have Scouts there frequently and can work on the MB as well. There are also several other rock climbing gyms in Florida (Tampa, St Pete, Melbourne, Ft Lauderdale, Jacksonville, etc.) that may be able to offer the same thing. While you normally don’t rappel in the gym when climbing they do set it up so you can (they also do it during their summer camps.)

A word of warning, you may become addicted to climbing after you go!!
