Quite the adventure! Ben and Eric were great leaders and are true experts in their field! I knew nothing about repelling, yet felt completely supported throughout the experience! They take you on a preliminary repel before getting to the waterfall which I found to be very helpful in getting comfortable with the skills/technique required!
