Rappelling Class

Since about 1995, we have been participating in a local rappelling class. In the class you learn about the thrilling art of recreational rappelling. Topics of instruction include tying a Swiss seat, belaying, basic rappelling, Australian rappelling, and general rappelling safety.

For more information and class schedules, call the Pleasant Hill Recreation Department, at 925-682-0896.
