Going over the edge at 'Over the Edge'

Over The Edge, an event to raise money for the Special Olympics Missouri, provided participants a chance to literally go over the edge — the edge of The Tiger Hotel. After suiting up, a brief gear instruction, a two-story practice rappel and an elevator ride to the top, participants pushed themselves to the limit and lowered themselves the down the side of the hotel.
