Rappelling Age Requirement 
For our upcoming camping trip, we decided that we'd do a bit of rappelling. My nephew overheard us talking about it and wants to join us. Personally, I don't mind. He's 12 years old and very responsible and mature compared to most kids his age. But his mom won't hear of it, telling us that it's too dangerous and he is underage. That got me thinking. Is there a minimum age requirement for someone to be allowed to go rappelling?

It depends on where you'll be rappelling. But also, it all depends as well on how mature and responsible the kid is. He's got to be willing to listen and follow instructions while he does that.

Re: Rappelling Age Requirement 
It depends on where you're planning to go rappelling. In some places, the minimum age requirement is 12 years old while others require them to be at least 16 years old to give it a try.
