This is not your typical rock climbing rappel! You will be wearing a full- body industrial harness and using an industrial descender to go down. You can control your speed to a certain extent. Should you go too fast the back-up device will engage.
Getting your weight off the roof and into the harness is the difficult part for most people. You will have an opportunity to practice your technique during training, and an OTE Technician will guide you through these first few steps. Once you’re over the edge, you will have a radio to communicate with your OTE Technician, but basically you are on your own. Don’t forget to stop and take in the view!
