CORRECTED CAPTION: Belayer Caleb Bentsen, left, slowly lowers an Over the Edge participant, Valerie Metherne, during the practice run three stories up at the Tiger Hotel on Wednesday. Participants who raised more than $1,000 for the Special Olympics were able to rappel off the building. An earlier version of this caption misidentified Metherne.
