Andrew Conventional rappel

by MAC

We spent just about a whole day of rappelling (conventional & Australian styles) and rock climbing with Mountain Area Ministries, directed by Steve Shamblim. The top belayer while we were rappelling was Thomas Shamblin and the two bottom belayers were Emily and Sadie Shamblin.
This is about a 70 foot rappel on Star Mountain in Tennessee. The site itself is about 500 feet above the Hiwassee River which can be seen below.
The object lessons our youth learned about personal initiative, courage, trust, and faith were invaluable and life-long!
