Rappelling and Climb in Virginia

Massanutten, VA
Rock Climbing, Rappelling, Scenic Mountainside Chairlift
8 Explorer Chicks
1/2 Day


Join Explorer Chick for an Exclusive, Women-Only Rappelling and Rock Climbing Mini Adventure in Virginia!

Explorer Chicks don’t just limit their outdoor experiences to familiar hiking trails and favorite hammock hanging spots! We know this life is worth LIVING! And nothing quite compares to the experience of making your way down a tall cliff or rock face while depending on the rope, carabiners, and your own inner #Bold strength!

You will start by being shuttled up the Mountainside. Once we get to Massanutten Peak, we will hike to location. We will then have our instructional class and safety briefing on the Mountainside.

While being assisted by your guide, you will experience the thrill of a 38ft and 58ft Rappel all safely harnessed in!

We will take a short break at the Scenic Overlook for beverages and a quick snack before reaching the rock climbing portion.

Come out and find out why Rock Climbing is a MASSIVELY growing sport! Climbing can fight depression, increase motivation, and help deal with problems and challenges in life. And like anything challenging, the rewards of completing a climb fuel a satisfaction in oneself unlike any other! We will have two different Class 5 climbing routes, with difficulty ratings from 5.6-5.8 to match your climbing experience and fitness level.

Professionally trained guides assist you during each activity, so no experience is necessary!

Once the day has come to an end, let the adrenaline calm as you sit back and relax on your scenic chairlift back to the base of the mountain. Keep your eyes peeled for the mountain’s abundant wildlife and you may catch a glimpse of a hawk, groundhog, or sleeping fawn!

If you choose to keep the Adventure going, we will be right by Base Camp prior to the lift down the mountainside. Stay for lunch at Base Camp and join us on the following Down Hill Mountainbiking Adventure! 🤘
