Rappeling into the sunset off Ridgeback (5.5) at Ridgeline. AJ was nervous about her first rappel, but the mountain lion encounter ten minutes later put things in perspective for her.

Her right hand is facing down for braking, it's just hard to tell in the pic. She would pull down to brake. The left hand is just to help guide the rope.

Thanks for the compliments on the picture! Feb 4, 2007

I'm sure she was properly coached before stepping off! First time raps can be an "eye opener." Cool photo with the sun don't you think.. Jan 17, 2007
