Atlanta boasts incredible opportunities to experience the thrill of rappelling without having to travel to the North Georgia mountains! Tucked into beautiful pockets just outside of the Perimeter are some incredibly pristine locations for an intro rappelling experience that will make you feel as if you're out in the North Georgia wilderness without ever leaving the city!
This experience will show you just how much mindset really matters, honing our ability to push our perceived limits and conquer fear. While rappelling is quite physically easy (my grandma did it with me once, true story), it can be extremely mentally challenging, allowing us to practice overcoming our fear of heights and our fear of embracing vulnerability, a critical trait of every CEO and leader.
Based on extensive psychological research made popular by best-selling author Brené Brown
, vulnerability – the willingness to be “all in” even when you know it can mean failing and hurting - is the most powerful ingredient for deep human connection.

Click the pin on the map below to open Google Maps directions from your location to Allenbrook. Google maps tends to end their directions right outside the entrance to the gravel road. However, you'll want to drive down the short gravel road into the entrance of the park until you get to the parking area. This gravel road is quite visible and marked with a State Park sign on the right side of the road (when traveling north on Roswell Road). We'll meet you in the parking area.Medical
