Gigante Bay


After you have climbed to the top of a cliff, you have to descend back down. Sometimes you can hike off the back side of the cliff, which is usually the safest way to descend. But sometimes you have to rappel because it is easier, safer, and faster than hiking to get back to the flat earth below the cliff.  
Rappelling is basically a simple climbing skill
but in that simplicity are many dangers.
