Hey guys! Long time, no see. I come bearing a weighty question…
Today, I had to turn down a job for a large university 5 minutes from my home because it requires rappelling.
Apparently, only one company in the area does rappelling and they are so busy they aren’t always available.
There are 5 universities within 20 minutes of me along with a good number of other high-rise buildings. From the start I had intended to possibly add high-rise work to my business and I feel now might be the time to pursue this more aggressively. I read everything I could find in search and still need help. So…
The actual questions
Does anyone have any general thoughts on rappelling and things I should be considering before attempting to go this direction?
How/where can I get properly trained in the safety and techniques?
What equipment would I need to start?
How much money should I be prepared to spend to go from no equipment/experience to set up and ready to begin?
