Lanita Medina ready to rappel

After her three girls went down, Lanita got up her courage to do it too.  Her knees were really shaking as she looked down into that deep chasm!

Lanita's smiling, but her knees are still shaking!  She made it to the bottom, thoughit took her awhile.

Benjamin Hunt preparing to rappel for first time at age 5

At age 5, Benjamin Hunt had never done this before.  He was very fearful at first, but we all coaxed him along.

After he got over the edge, he changed his mind and decided to climb back up.  But we all kept shouting words of encouragement, so he tremblingly let himself down.

     Once he learned to trust the rope, things went better.

He also discovered that bracing away from with the cliff with his feet was not so bad after all.

With Daniel belaying at the bottom, he felt reassured.  He was a brave little fellow and did great after the first 30 feet or so!

She was over the edge and on her way down in no time, water bottle and all.

She flipped upside down, did some big leaps, and put on a good show for her parents, who'd never seen her expertise in rappelling.  Mom Vickie took pictures from the top while dad Steve photographed from the bottom.

Sarah Ward, another expert, decided to have some fun going down face first.
