Here it is in all its glory -- the Widowmaker. 560 feet from top to bottom. This is one truly big rappel.
Approaching the sharp edge. Care should be taken here to position the rope where it will be least likely to be cut.
Impact crater left by one of several small stones dropped from above
Brand new rope. The end exploded when it blew thru the rings at the top during the rope pull. This was unavoidable. Gravity takes over and the rope pulls itself.
Packing up after the big rappel. No widows today.
