WELCOME TO THE NEM COMMUNITY!
Thank you for choosing Northeast Mountaineering! We are looking forward to meeting you and taking you on an unforgettable adventure. At Northeast Mountaineering, we strive to give you the best climbing experience possible. We will work hard to make your time with us a success from start to finish!

ON THE DAY OF YOUR ADVENTURE
On the day of your scheduled rappel we will meet at 9:00AM sharp at The Bunkhouse at Northeast Mountaineering. If you are late, we cannot wait for you, as a courtesy to our other climbers. Please plan your travel accordingly. Don’t forget to factor in pit stops, traffic, and navigation errors due to limited cell signals in the area.

For liability reasons, we do not offer transportation. Please plan to drive your car or carpool to the trailhead.

Your guided mountain adventure will run regardless of the weather. Come prepared for the worst and hope for the best!

Please bring your health insurance card with you.

WHAT YOU WILL NEED
Please bring footwear that can get soaked as you will be standing in water at times. Also please wear synthetic materials that will dry out quicker than cotton such as wool, polyester, or techwick. We recommend that you wear a t-shirt and shorts because you will be wearing a harness and it may be uncomfortable in a swim suit. You will appreciate having a towel and a dry shirt for after the fun has ended. A small backpack to carry these items plus some food and water is recommended.

We will provide helmets, harnesses, belay devices and technical equipment. Wetsuits, Rappel gloves and water shoes are optional rentals and can be rented on the day of your adventure. You do not need to rent these items ahead of time.

Your rappel will run in the event of rain, however in certain circumstances heavy rain can result in the water flow rising too high to safely rappel. We always do our best to judge this, however it is difficult to predict the exact conditions and we may not find out until we arrive at the waterfall. Should we deem the waterfall unsafe, we will do our very best to offer you another time slot or your adventure will be rescheduled. We cannot offer a refund due to weather.

Should you find yourself needing any piece of gear or clothing, we do have rental equipment. Please secure your rentals ahead of time to arrange the appropriate rentals for your trip. Rentals are often an additional cost.

We do not provide food. Please plan to bring your own food for your adventure.
