March 10 Session 2- Over & Under Adventure: Rappel and Mine tour


March 10, 11:30 - 2:30

Ready for an adventure here in the Franklin Mountains?

Rappel off a 90 foot cliff and then explore the mine under the exact same rock you rappelled off of! 

Join an exclusive tour into the copper mine located in the Tom Mays Unit of Franklin Mountains State Park.  We’ll unlock the gate at the mine shaft entrance and take a small group into this mysterious place for a tour to learn about the geology and history of El Paso and the Franklins.  No climbing is necessary, just one tight squeeze to enter the mine.  The shaft is over 300 feet long and contains an amazing variety of rocks and minerals, some brightly colored.

Rappel off the 90 foot cliff above the mine with gear and instruction provided by an American Mountain Guide Association certified instructor. carefully learn the "ropes" until you feel confident enough to get over that edge and on down the vertical wall. 

Be Prepared:

  • Wear comfortable clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty. 
  • Temperature inside the mine is a relatively constant 65ºF.
  • No food or drink allowed inside the mine.
  • Hardhats/helmets/harnesses/gear and flashlights will be supplied by your guides.


11:30-2:30.  Meet up by the Mundy gap trail head in the Tom Mays Unit -Franklin Mountains State Park at 8:30 in the morning where you will be given some paperwork to fill out and some gear to bring to the Mine and Mundy's wall.
