At Girl's Camp, I had the opportunity to be over the 4th years. This group of girls was AMAZING. We went on an 8 mile overnight backpacking hike (which was not just walking for 8 miles, it was straight up or straight down or switch backs. My husband went on it without a pack, and wanted to die. I can't say I blame him). Before we went, as a little treat, we took the girls rappelling. I am TERRIFIED of heights, but one of the girls said she would not go unless I did. I tried to convince her that I went as a 4th year so that counted. That didn't fly bye her so I had to rappel. Here's some pictures of my adventure.
You can kind of see how far up I was. It was about 40 or 50 feet. You can't tell, but I was jumping about 5 feet off the wall, because it was actually kind of fun.
Safe back on the ground. My legs were shaking. But I would totally do it again, though next time I would want my own harness and my helmet. Those things just make me feel so much safer. :)
