What to wear

You’re going to be walking down the side of a building so wear good shoes. Well-fitting sneakers, light hiking boots, or other soft-soled shoes are recommended.

No sandals, slip-on shoes, slippers, flip flops, high heels, or steel-toed boots will be allowed. Wear long pants and a long-sleeved shirt. Athletic pants, tights and jeans are suitable. The harness goes around your legs, waist, and shoulders, so it is best to avoid anything too bulky. Shirts should be comfortable and without drawcords. Long hair should be tied back.

You will be required to leave droppable items like keys and cell phones, or jewelry that can get caught on things, with a staff member on-site. You will be given a pair of leather gloves and a helmet when you arrive. Many people choose to wear costumes for their rappel.

All costumes will need to meet the same standards as listed above. Capes will have to be approved by the Site Safety Supervisor for the main rappel.

If you have a question about what alterations your costume will need, please email pictures of your costume prior to the event so our staff can check it out!
