Sat (4/21), I went rappelling at Snow Creek Wall with my friend Melissa. Of course there was some climbing that we had to do to get to our high point in order to do the sweet rappels, but in the end it was worth it. We decided that the first 3 pitches of Orbit would be suitable beause the wandering nature of he route would mean more interesting rappels. As we got to the top of the 3rd pitch, some menacing clouds that had been pouring down from the Enchantments finally sat above us and a little rain came down to enhance the experience. Having one of those "chic" 60m ropes, I was happy to go first on out first rappel which went down over a roof into the abyss. As it turned out, the "abyss was a flat ledge with a bolted (circa 70s) station. The next rappel went down a gully and as we puled the rope, it got caught around a horn, so I had to do some more of that stupid climbing stuff to go up and get it. 2 more raps and we were back at the packs. We started down the obvious path from the end of our last rappel after packing our things, only to find that we got a bonus rappel!!!! We hurridly unpacked rope and harnesses and got to the business. Can you believe it?!?! Only 3 climbing pitches to score 5 rappels, my lucky day. It was still raining, so we went to Uncle Ulis to celebrate and finished the day with some Swiftwater bouldering once it dried up a bit. We did some fun V0-1ish things and goofed around on a V3 next to Royal Flush (which I pumped out on and fell off the last move gaining the slab, closest I've ever been to sending).

Ah, you made the mistake of taking your harnesses off too early. Had you left your harnesses on until reaching the trail, you would not have had to do the last rappel.

i know, murphey's law of rappeling. if you leave the harness on you will walk down a trail. if you take it off you will find yourself cliffed out. :(
