Information For Rappellers - Event Day Details
What to Wear:
Wear comfortable and “movable” clothes, such as jeans/pants and sneakers. We will be giving you an event T-shirt when you arrive.
You must arrive 1 hour before your rappel time. Please check in at the base camp, where a volunteer will greet you. You will be briefed and geared up by our experts from Over the Edge USA, and you will then have the opportunity to do a training rappel down a short wall. After the training rappel, it will be your turn to go to the roof and then “Over the Edge”.
Although you had the opportunity to request a rappel time when you registered for the event, please realize that although we will make every effort to respect your choice of rappel times, we reserve the right to make changes to the rappel schedule as needed. You will be notified if your rappel time is changed, and we plan to post the rappel schedule on this website as we get closer to the event.
Going "Over the Edge":
Please be assured that Over the Edge USA has taken every safety precaution there is. Every Over the Edge event is set up as an industrial worksite and as a result is compliant with all federal and state OSHA Fall Protection Standards and Laws. Also, All Over the Edge sites have highly trained industrial rope specialists, all of which are IRATA or SPRAT certified.
Reminder we will be having contests for all rappellers. Prizes will be awarded for the following:
- Fastest Rappel
- Best Costume
- Slowest Rappel
- Most Money raised
- Biggest Chicken
We expect this event to generate a lot of media exposure so you may see some reporters and cameras. Please make sure to reserve your picture to be taken the day of the event.
All participants will receive a free photo going "Over the Edge." Shortly after the event, we will be sure to post the rest of the photos online for you and your friends to view and share.
